Adolescent Dog Maintenance Pack – Small to Medium Breed

Adolescent Dog Maintenance Pack – Small to Medium Breed


This pack is for adolescent dogs from 6 months to 18 months and beyond.  We put this pack together because all pups think they can fly and can end up hurting themselves which in turn causes joint pain and inflammation as they get older.

The growth plates in the pup are the areas of cartilage that develop at the end of the long bones of the legs.  Over time, they calcify and develop into denser matter as the puppy gets older and works its muscles more.

As your puppy grows, how and when they exercise should match their development – only increasing as they grow.  This happens in conjunction with the hardening process of the growth plates themselves.

Before growth plates fully develop and mature into harder bone matter, they can be extremely vulnerable to injury.  Injuries to growth plates mostly occur from too much exercise and hard impacts.  These are the final parts of the long bones to harden.

Injuries or fractures to a leg before the growth plates have hardened can present problems with healing.  This may lead to potential developmental deformities of the leg or joint.  It may even include cell damage that prevents the growth plate from fully developing, leading to a deformity of the bone.

Any dog can develop arthritis, but it is more common in older dogs and large breeds, such as German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, and Great Danes. It can also occur more often in breeds with hereditary conditions linked to arthritis.

Side note: We would advise giving your dog a balanced raw diet so she/he starts their journey with the best nutrition possible.  If you cannot do a completely raw diet then supplementing with raw is better than no raw at all! It’s simple really, feed a species-appropriate diet throughout their life and they will live happier and longer lives. Talk to us about balanced raw feeding.
