The Pug will happily become your best friend. Pugs typically enjoy a long life and is one of the most historic breeds. As a fairly inactive breed that doesn’t seem to mind time in smaller environments, Pugs have secured their popularity by fitting into a modern urban life with ease.
Pugs do not have a high exercise requirement but this combined with their sometimes stubborn nature means they can be prone to weight gain as they age. Keeping your Pug at the right weight and ensuring they get quality, specially formulated nutrition is a must. They are also at risk of Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS), which are breathing problems linked to the shape of their face that can become worse in high temperatures.
You can help them by taking the following preventative approach:
- Regular cleansing and drying of the folds of skin on the face to prevent infection
- Appropriate weight management
- Supplementation to help clear out free radicals and keep airways clear, especially in urban environments
Whilst supplementation alone cannot cure BOAS, Rova’s Immune Assist can help your dog maintain clear airways by supporting the immune system to protect against harmful everyday particles and pollutants, including the active removal of antagonists and free radicals from the body. This can be especially helpful in urban environments.
Made in easy to digest pellets that can be served with your dog’s normal food, it combines efficient nutrient absorption with optimal dosage, avoiding the over-consumption and weight gain that can result from functional treats. This is especially important with breeds predisposed to weight gain, such as the Pug, in order to maximise the benefits of the calories they do consume.
