Miniature Schnauzers are known generally to be a healthy breed. This small dog breed however do have some known health problems that may be an inconvenience to you and your pet so identifying these and knowing how to prevent them is crucial. Here are some health issues your Mini Schnauzer may encounter and how to prevent them:
Simply put, this condition is the inflammation of the pancreas, the gland that produces chemicals that controls sugar and fat absorption. Mini Schnauzers are known to suffer from high fat levels and this triggers their pancreas to be overworked.
Prevention: Preventing pancreatitis from occurring revolves around the dog’s diet. Make sure to give food that is low- or non-fat. Taking your Mini Schnauzer in daily walks as exercise would also help in burning stored fat.
Like in humans, Mini Schnauzers are prone to having high blood sugar levels. This goes hand-in-hand with Pancreatitis because the gland affected by this is the pancreas. Once the pancreas is affected and is unable to produce insulin (hormone that regulates blood sugar), the excess sugar is then left in the dog’s blood rather than being absorbed by the body.
Prevention: The diet of the dog should comprise of high fiber and complex carbohydrates. Make sure to check dog foods for sugar content. Serve the meals in several small ones rather than one big meal to allow proper absorption of nutrients. Exercise is necessary.
Bumps or “comedone” is similar to a black head to humans. Hair follicles are plugged with oil and dirt and become irritated. This becomes infected and eventually is filled with pus.
Prevention: Proper grooming is the key in treating this condition. Use dog shampoos that get rid of excess oil in your Mini Schnauzers’ skin and coat. Keep the coat trimmed as to aerate the skin. Giving food that is rich in zinc, omega oils and Vitamins A & E would be beneficial.
We can see in this video a gorgeous Miniature Schnauzer puppy while playing on the bed with a mischievous cat. They are trying to knock each other down and dominate the bed. If you want a good laugh, I highly recommend you this video. The exciting competition ends in a very unexpected way. Miniature Schnauzers can do well with non-canine pets if they are socialized well.
My answer is yes, if you would like to have a small, intelligent and energetic dog that is also very loving and playful with everyone. The Miniature Schnauzer is a good companion and family pet if they are treated properly and the humans show them who the pack leader is, otherwise they tend to become dominant if everything is allowed for them. These dogs love children and can do well with other dogs and non-canine pets in the house if they are socialized well. They can make excellent watchdogs and vermin hunters. These dogs need long, daily walks and at least half an hour playing sessions with the family. The Miniature Schnauzer can do well in an apartment as long as they get enough daily exercise.
The coat of the Miniature Schnauzer is a wiry, long double coat that requires trimming at least twice a year (in spring and autumn) and daily brushing to keep it from matting. They are minimal shedders. Special attention must be paid to the hair of the ears and around the eyes to prevent health problems. After meals the whiskers must be cleaned. This breed is prone to health issues like kidney stones, liver diseases, diabetes and obesity.
Training of the Miniature Schnauzer is slightly hard, as they tend to be dominant, so the trainer must be consistent, calm and firm during training. Early socialization and obedience training is very much recommended to prevent dominancy problems later.
All in all, the Miniature Schnauzer is the best for families or single persons who would like to have a docile and affectionate dog and will be able to show the dog who is the pack leader and will also provide them the necessary care to keep them happy.
I hope this article will help you decide whether the Miniature Schnauzer is the best breed for you.
