How to care for your Pitbulll dog.

Exercise and nutrition

Pitbulls require up to an hour of exercise a day when fully grown, but remember to watch out for the midday heat as walking them in the sun isn’t good for their health.

They need to be fed high-quality food up to twice daily. Make sure your dog has fresh water available at all times to avoid dehydration. If you are unsure or have any questions about how much to feed your pet and how often, please consult your veterinarian.
 

Pitbulls are the 6th most popular breed in America.

Due to the breed’s large head, over 80% of Pitbulls are delivered by cesarean section.

Pitbulls aren’t very strong swimmers. Like many other breeds with larger skulls, they are at risk of drowning when in the water.

Common health problems and illnesses

Pitbulls do have their share of health issues, mostly due to their short noses, wide torsos and narrow waists, which is why it’s a good idea to take out insurance for your Pitbulls while they’re still a puppy. 

Respiratory problems
Pitbulls often experience respiratory problems, the most common of which is an elongated soft pallet. With this disorder comes the risk of breathing difficulties, vomiting, and excitability. Laser surgery is often the most viable option for correcting this common condition.
Bloat

Bloat is a serious concern amongst Pitbull owners, and this problem arises when the canine swallows too much air while eating and the stomach subsequently fills with air. This can then lead to a dangerous condition known as gastric torsion, which involves the stomach twisting and cutting off circulation to the stomach and spleen. Gastric torsion can be fatal, so it’s important to seek advice from your veterinarian as soon as possible if you think your dog may have this condition.

Eye problems

Eye problems are also common in Pitbulls, and the breed can frequently suffer from conditions known as cherry eye, ectropion and entropion. The latter are caused by the excess skin on the dog’s face, while cherry eye is caused by the protrusion of the lachrymal gland out through the eye. All three of these common conditions require surgery to correct.

Skin problems
Eczema and acne are also common conditions that require continual maintenance once they have developed in your dog. However, your veterinarian will be able to offer advice around how best to manage these conditions.
