Springer Spaniel Life Span
While the average life span for the Springer Spaniel
is 10 to 15 yrs., there are several components that can ultimately determine
the life span of your dog including diet, exercise, grooming, and genetic
Your dogs diet is important as many of the commercial pet
foods given to our pets are nutritionally inadequate, and that many deficiency
diseases are the direct result of poor feeding. Like humans, dogs need the
right combination of the basic food groups in order to have a healthy life
Another important factor in your dogs health is keeping his
weight at a healthy level. Studies have shown that dogs that lead a sedentary
life are significantly more susceptible to illnesses and medical problems when
compared to active dogs. As part of your dog health care program take your dog
out for some jogging or play fetch with him and participate in some activities
where he gets a chance to run.
grooming is important to the health of your dog for his entire life span.
Washing, combing, brushing, checking ears, paws, teeth and underside, nail
trimming, removing dog fleas and insects, and having regular visits to the vet
are all important activities that a dog owner should undertake.
just as prone to falling prey to illnesses as humans and there are hundreds of
disease types that can affect them, which is why you need a good supporting
veterinarian whom to turn to for proper dog health advice, and from whom to
also get the best treatment administered to your pet in case he falls ill or
becomes injured. You can also help to keep your English Springer Spaniel
healthy by educating yourself about any health problems that he could have and
keep track of what your vet diagnoses. If your vet tells you something is wrong
with your Springer, you should know a little bit about what he tells you, and
what you can do to help take care of the problem.
It's a good idea to
not let your pet insurance lapse as your dog
ages. Most insurance companies have an age cut-off beyond which they will not
accept new policies. Generally, this is around 8-years-old for small breed
dogs. If you have a decent policy, hangon to it.
If you take care of
your dog and keep him healthy, he will live a lot longer. You should always
strive to keep your dog healthy, so he can live a pain free life. As long as
you feed him a proper diet and let him get plenty of exercise, he will stay
strong and healthy. English Springer Spaniels that grow to be strong and
healthy make great pets, as they can join you in exercise and provide plenty of
fun for your entire family.
