    The fragile stomach of the Doberman
    A common disease that Doberman puppies suffer from is stomach pain and mild diarrhea. This may be due to simple causes such as stress or changes in drinking water sources. The adult men's Doberman's stomachs are equally sensitive, so watch out for their diet.

    Changing the diet of both dogs and humans, or overeating, or stress, are the main causes of Doberman's diarrhea. These symptoms of abdominal pain need to be adjusted. If after 1 or 2 days but still not clear, you must bring your Doberman to see the veterinarian and check stool samples.
    You must assess both the food source and the waste of the dog. Diarrhea is a nuisance, but it will be more troublesome if your dog does not have a bowel movement. Constipation may be due to diet. It may also be due to lack of exercise. In the worst case can cause intestinal obstruction. The Doberman usually swallows all sorts of miscellaneous things into the abdomen, so if you do not see anything in the backyard within a day or two, it's a good idea to get your attention to the vet. You should also keep out of the reach of what your home Doberman can swallow, teach it to just chew on what you give. You can give the chewers interesting items while training.

    Urinary
    When breeding Doberman we have to pay attention to urinary problems. The urinary tract is a problem that needs to be addressed. For males, showing indecision or stress when urinating may be a sign of urinary tract problems and should be directed to the vet immediately. The male instinct is to mark the territory. The Doberman "dude" often marks it carefully at each dot scattered around the yard or strange place. Therefore, it must have many places to discharge the bladder. Males will be very willing to store water for use in case there is something to mark. However, it does allow bacteria to emerge, so it takes a long time to clear the bladder.

    As for bitches, urinary problems that bitches are most prone to are urinary tract infections, especially during puberty or during menstruation. The most common sign of biting a bitch with urinary tract infection is fever, urinary excretion, and bloody stools. If the bitch is cut before the oestrus, it may not develop enough urinary tract and lead to uncontrolled (urinating).

    Doberman's ears
    Doberman's ears need to be cleaned and checked regularly. If the ears are trimmed, then there is no need to worry anymore. If not, the ear is still as soft as the newborn baby, which requires careful care to avoid infection. The most common way to prevent infections is to use a cleaning solution to clean the ears. But be careful not to stir too deep into the ear.
    If not cleaned regularly, the raw Doberman (natural ear) can be infected many times throughout its life. The main purpose is "prevention rather than cure". Symptoms of infection usually include: rash, swelling, fever or stinking. If you find these symptoms, it is important to take the dog to the veterinarian as soon as possible to prevent the infection from catching up.

    Teeth care
    Preventing dental diseases. The dog can not say it is hurt. In the dog world, expressing pain is a mistake, so they will learn to hide their pain. For oral problems too. Many people think the problem of dog teeth is not very interesting.
    Actually giving them less to gnaw on your teeth or drinking milk to clean your horn is not enough. Doberman needs to be brushed monthly and cleaned every year. Gums and teeth should also be checked regularly. Still the motto of "prevention rather than cure", dental care is as essential as taking care of other parts of the body. Puppy teeth do not need much care because they replace their teeth. However, brushing teeth from a young age will help the dog become accustomed to other care later.
    Using new dog brushes can be easily brushed around the dog's mouth. One tip is to use a cloth wrapped around the lower jaw when brushing your teeth and vice versa when brushing your teeth. In so doing the dog will not bite the brush. For extra teeth, you can use a special type of shaving device. But be careful because the tool is very sharp. This may be done by a veterinarian or assistant who specializes in brushing and brushing. They often take painkillers to do this job smoothly.

    Fur
    Doberman quite a few feathers. However, feathers and skin are two parts that clearly show the situation of dog health. Bad variety, poor nutrition, lack of vitamins, poor hygiene, and stress are the causes of bad hair. Hair loss, dandruff and acne are signs that the dog is having a health problem. The rare Doberman breeds such as Green Doberman or Isabella have a higher incidence of hair, skin and other diseases than the rest of the Doberman breeds.
    Hair loss in dogs can occur in two directions, one is the fall of the hair falling gradually, two is the hair loss in each array, if not treated in time can lead to hair loss. The thinning of the hair may be due to the stress of the dog, as in the case of bitches that often shed hair after birth. The dog is full of body nutrients for the baby, so it's like she has "spent too much" on her nutrients. But then the hair will grow back thick.
    In the case of hairy fall, the dog shows that the dog is in poor condition or the body is lacking in resistance, as it may be a condition for the bacteria to grow and eat into the pores. Lack of resistance may be due to stress or lack of certain vitamins or minerals, but with this symptom, vitamin or mineral deficiency may be abnormally severe.
