  • General Labrador Care: Comb and Brush Regularly, Bathe Occasionally

    Labradors are very good natured pets that are also people-oriented and love being a part of the family. They are also very good with children and generally, Labrador care will not be much of a problem. However, there are still certain factors that influence how to take care of the Labrador and they include realizing that the Labrador takes until it reaches three years of age before attaining adulthood and will thus have a prolonged puppyhood. This is in stark contrast to other breeds that mature earlier at two years of age.

    Donít Let It Become Overweight

    An important consideration in general Labrador care is to keep its weight down and not let it put on extra pounds which would make it prone to contracting health problems such as heart trouble as well as arthritis. One should feed it nutritious food and give it an occasional treat so that it gets variety as well as healthy food intakes that are essential to having a healthy pet and also gives its coat sheen, if fed properly.

    One needs to also learn the various health problems associated with the Labrador such as hip and elbow dysplasia and also eye disorders. Grooming is an essential part of Labrador care that would require regular brushing and giving it a bath only occasionally and that too, only when it begins to give off an odor. Use a good dog shampoo that has flea protection properties and remember that the Labrador does not shed heavily so that brushing it with a slicker brush every week should suffice to keep it looking clean. Also check its eyes, ears and paws for signs of trouble or for parasite infestation.

    Nail Care

    For good Labrador care, generally it should have its nails trimmed at least once a month so that it is protected from foot problems and for this you may use a pair of nail trimmers. As it can often be quite stubborn, treat your Labrador with firmness as well as be consistent with it, especially when training it and it should be taught not to bark or chew things for which it has a penchant. You can keep the Labrador indoors or leave it out in the yard and since it is not a hyper-active animal will be happy in either surrounding.

    Often, one may see some symptoms in a dog that may arouse suspicions and one would be well advised to act early if one suspects something amiss with oneís Labrador. You may be surprised to learn that the best food for your Labrador is real food such as chicken and turkey as well as beef along with plenty of fresh raw vegetables and fruits and also brown rice and some oatmeal. And, for good Labrador care, one may also include yogurt, eggs as well as cottage cheese to its diet and if you find cooking for your Labrador a chore, at least feed it human-grade commercial food of premium quality.

    One chooses and selects a good vet for the Labrador based on whether one wants to give oneís pet allopathic or holistic treatment. You may prefer giving your pet drugs, medications as well as chemicals or opt for finding preventive cures that would help build the immune system of the pet and generally, in Labrador care; a holistic vet would promote wellness of the pet from within and address health concerns facing the Labrador.
