Prevention is critical to the health of your Rottweiler and your wallet. To avoid unnecessary medical bills and to keep your dog happy and fit, make it a habit to check these things as you groom or snuggle with your dog:

  • Skin should be free of eruptions.

  • Coat should be thick, lustrous, and clean.

  • Ears should be clean, without an offensive odor.

  • Teeth should be white without accumulated tartar.

  • Eyes should be clear and bright with no discharge or irritation.

  • Nails should be short, with no cracks or ragged edges.

  • Check the rectal temperature whenever your dog appears out of sorts. (Normal is between 101.5 and 102 degrees Fahrenheit.)
