There are some steps that you can take to try to avoid this health issue with your Pug.
Your dog’s diet.
Reevaluate what you are feeding your Pug, including both main mains and snacks
. Cheaper foods will have higher levels of inexpensive carbohydrates and fillers; both can cause digestive problems. Dry kibble also contains a lot less moisture than home cooked food or wet canned food
, so dogs eating kibble often need to be encouraged to drink more water.
As you know, water is vital to maintaining good health. A Pug can quickly become dehydrated. Dogs need about 13 ounces (13.53 Imperial ounces) of water each day. This equals 1.62 cups (.38 liters) for each 10 pounds (4.53 kg) of body weight. Going by this guideline, a 10 lb. (4.53 kg) Pug should be drinking at roughly 2 cups per day and a 20 lb (9.07 kg) Pug would need about 4 cups. Dogs will need more if exercising more, if food is dry and/or if the weather is hot.
When out for walks, be sure to bring along water and take a break about 1/2 through. If you leave your Pug home alone and he tends to tip his bowls, use a dispenser to that he'll have a fresh supply throughout the day.
It really helps for Pug to have daily exercise
. This will you dog stay healthy in so many different ways including having healthy bowel movements.
