PUG WEIGHT

According to the AKC,the average pug weight should be between 14 and 18 lbs. However, the AKC tends to be very conservative, liking their dogs weight to be on the lean side, if not slightly emaciated. A better, more reasonable healthy pug weight is 20. That being said, every pug is built differently. In addition, nowadays, we see more sturdier, bigger boned pugs.These pugs weigh about 20 -22 lbs, without a lot of fat. They are not the AKC standard, but they are healthy and happy. Now, be very careful, this does not mean that your pug should weigh 20 or more pounds. If your pug is tiny (at full grown) then it would fall under the range of 14 to 18lb. These are almost always pure bred and most from championship lines. There's no question that from in-breeding and over-breeding today's pug is larger and therefore a heavier weight than the old standard pug weight.
fat pug weight
Scales are a must to monitor the pug weight. However, to tell if you have an overweight pug is look at it from above and look down at the body, observing the ribs. If you do not see the pug's ribs sticking out, the pug is overweight. Reducing a fat pug's weight is a must, or you can count on more pug health problems. The pug diet must be monitored in order to achieve the correct, healthy pug weight. Small portions twice or even three times a day work well. Table scraps are not encouraged and are hard to monitor in the complete diet. One healthy treat is fine for rewards.

A sure way to help with the overweight pug is to measure the portions of food. With our California Gold Pet Food for Pugs, each of our bags comes with a dog weight chart on the label that includes the portions for specific-weight of pugs. This method creates a healthy weight. The food is truly of the highest quality, and with FREE SHIPPING SAMPLES here. It is truly the best dog food for pugs.

Another sure-fire way to help with a healthy pug weight is exercise. Make sure your pug is taken for a walk every day and play with your pug every day. When they want to run around in the house don't necessarily discourage this, they need it. Do be careful of over-exercising, especially in the heat. Exercise in the heat is very dangerous. Pugs have sensitive respiratory organs. If your pug is panting heavily, stop the exercise and make sure water is available. Proper pug weight is essential, please do not overlook exercise in order to avoid an overweight pug.

Pug Health problems

Since Pugs lack longer snouts and prominent skeletal brow ridges, they are susceptible to eye injuries such as proptosis, scratched corneas, and painful entropion.[2] They also have compact breathing passageways, leaving many prone to breathing difficulties or unable to efficiently regulate their temperature through evaporation from the tongue by panting. A Pug's normal body temperature is between 101 °F (38 °C) and 102 °F (39 °C). If this temperature rises to 105 °F (41 °C), oxygen demand is greatly increased and immediate cooling is required. If body temperature reaches 108 °F (42 °C), organ failure can occur.[23] Their breathing problems can be worsened by the stresses of travelling in air cargo, which may involve high temperatures. Following the deaths of Pugs and other brachycephalic breeds, several airlines either banned their transport in cargo or enacted seasonal restrictions.

Pugs that live a mostly sedentary life can be prone to obesity, though this is avoidable with regular exercise and a healthy diet.[26] (See the average pug weight above). The median life span of Pugs is 11 years, which is in line with other breeds of the same size.[27]

Common conditions

 An overweight Pug. Sedentary Pugs can be prone to obesity. (Make sure you check on the average weight for a pug).

Pugs, like other short-snouted breeds, have elongated palates. When excited, they are prone to "reverse sneezing" which causes them to quickly (and seemingly laboriously) gasp and snort. The veterinary name for this is pharyngeal gag reflex and it is caused by fluid or debris getting caught under the palate and irritating the throat or limiting breathing. Reverse sneezing episodes are usually not harmful, and massaging the dog's throat or covering its nose in order to make it breathe through its mouth can often shorten a sneezing fit.[28]

Some pugs are also born with stenotic nares which can also inhibit their breathing. In serious cases, the pinched nostrils make breathing even more difficult for this breed and put added pressure on the larynx.[29] In some cases, the dog could pass out from blocked airways. If this happens, one should inquire with their veterinarian whether or not surgery is needed to modify the breathing passages.[30]

Eye prolapse is a common problem among Pugs and other brachycephalic breeds (see Brachycephalic syndrome)[31] and can be caused by a trauma to the head or neck, or even by the owner using a tight leash instead of a harness.[32] While the eye can usually be pushed back into its socket by the owner or by a vet, veterinary attention is usually advisable. If the prolapse happens on a regular basis, the Pug might require surgery.[33]

Pugs have many wrinkles in their faces, so owners will often clean inside the creases to avoid irritation and infection.[34] If this is not done, the dog may develop a condition known as skin fold dermatitis.[35]

An abnormal formation of the hip socket, known as hip dysplasia, affected nearly 64% of Pugs in a survey performed by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals; the breed was ranked the second worst-affected by this condition out of 157 breeds tested.[36]

Pugs are one of several breeds that are more susceptible than other dogs to demodectic mange, also known as "demodex". This condition is caused when parasitic mites, that are often present in a dog's skin without causing symptoms, are allowed to do damage because their host has a weakened immune system. It is a problem for many young Pugs, although not usually a major one, and is easily treatable, but some are especially susceptible and present with a systemic form of the condition.[37] This vulnerability is thought to be genetic and breeders will avoid producing puppies from adults who have this condition.[38] In 2008, an investigative documentary carried out by the BBC found significant inbreeding between pedigree dogs, with a study by Imperial College, London, showing that the 10,000 Pugs in the UK are so inbred that their gene pool is the equivalent of only 50 individuals.[39]

Pug Health Care Manual. Addressing Pug Health Problems

Our 72-page Manual
is full of essential,
hard-to-find pug information on pug health problems, including pug eye problems, pug itch/allergy and other pug health conditions!

PUGS ARE SPECIAL--and we will pass on much of the important pug health problems and knowledge we have accumulated from years of rescuing, fostering, and placing over 130 pugs in California.
Even people who have had pugs for years
will learn a LOT!

The Pug Health Care Manual, Vol. 1 is a no-nonsense, tell it like it is Pug Owner's Manual addressing essential pug health problems, aspects of proper care, maintenance, and longevity of your Pug.

It is to the point with no filler or fluff. It is not filled up with generalized information found in most dog-care books. It is also not a primer on pugs from A-Z or it would be 300 pages and cost a lot more! No, the cost of this Manual is less than a typical vet visit, but you will probably learn much more about your pug with our highly specialized information on the following topics (usually overlooked in general dog health books) of pug health problems:

1. Does Your Pug Itch? What to do about it for instant relief, and what to do for the long haul. Diet has a lot to do with it--find out what foods most pugs are allergic to, and what they can eat to strengthen their immune system, resulting in soft and shiny coats, increased energy, and from our experience, increased pug life expectancy.

2. Why Do Pugs Rub Their Eyes? This is the most common pug health problem reported. If left neglected, many pugs go blind, or at best, near-blind from this condition. It doesn't need to happen to yours. Includes a Do-It-Yourself Test for the most common eye disease that many vets overlook. (Note: pugs who lick their feet are almost ALWAYS also rubbing their eyes - watch them carefully. This eye info is a MUST!)

3. What Does it Mean if I Find a Lump on My Pug? First it has to be determined if it's malignant. Second, if so, what are your options? Is cancer necessarily a death-sentence? Includes alternative treatment options that work, too.

4. "My Pug is Impossible to Housebreak!" Never say never! Not when we've got "Guerilla Housebreaking Tactics!" for the hard-to-train pug of any age!

5. Anal sac problems discussed. This is one of the most talked about pug health problems.
