But still there are diseases to which they are more prone to than others.
- Injuries associated with increased dog mobility and a tendency to climb vertical surfaces (for example, to climb high fences): dislocations, fractures, etc.
- Diseases of the genitourinary system. But if the disease is detected in time and the veterinarian appointments are completed, this does not cause any particular problems.
- Overheat. Do not leave the affinpincher in the heat in the sun for a long time.
Follow the mood and well-being of the affinpincher. If you notice frightening symptoms (lack of appetite, vomiting, digestive upset, problems with urination, lameness, fever, etc.), contact your veterinarian as soon as possible.
