A veterinarian should be selected with great care. Choose one who will be responsive to your dog's needs and who will be kind and gentle. All dogs require proper immunization against major infectious diseases, as well as regular examinations. Your veterinarian should do frequent checks for internal parasites.
Proper diet, adequate housing and regular grooming are essential for all dogs, no matter which breed. Food of a proper nutritional formula is extremely important during the puppy's early growth and, indeed, for the entire life of the dog. Appropriate daily exercise for your breed is also necessary for health and well-being.
