Choke The Pug Came To Our Vallejo clinic

Young pups and lifelong pets at http://facebook.com/dogandcatshots

This graying Pug came to our Vallejo clinic and reminds us that sometimes these dogs do live a long time and can bring many years of happiness with them. Pugs were first brought from China to Europe in the 16th century. Their compact well-muscled body with short muzzle contributed to the breeding of the English Bull Dog and those characteristics show in all bull-types. Pugs have been used many times in the history of breeding to cross with pre-existing dogs to create new smaller breeds. Now that we are in the high heat of summer, remember that Pugs, along with all other brachycephalic breeds, have a limited cooling capacity due to their short face. We need to be careful that they don’t over-heat and we have to insure that they stay well hydrated in the summer after exertion OR after vaccinations. – Geoffrey Antipa
