Most dog breeds have certain inherited health problems associated with that specific breed, and the Doberman Pinscher is no exception. He be on the lookout for bloat (gastric dilatation-volvulus, the second leading killer of dogs, can kill in an hour, this space is too limited for a full explanation, but you should read up on it). Feeding more than once a day and avoiding exercise right after meals can help protect against bloat, canine hip dysplasia (genetic-based looseness in the hip joint that can lead to arthritis pain and lameness), von Willebrands disease (a problem with blood clotting), skin problems, liver disease, fatty tumors, Wobbler’s disease, and hypothyroidism (slow thyroid gland which can result in weight gain).

You should visit the vet several times during the first year for shots, boosters, and checkups. Then, as an adult, he should visit the vet annually for shots and checkups. As he grows older, from the age of six, he should visit the vet twice a year for checkups and vaccinations. To remember; Avoid giving your dog candy.
The Doberman Pinscher has a short, tight fine coat that sheds to the middle. She must be brushed regularly. Brushing will help her maintain a clean, healthy coat and help you keep a closer eye on her health and strengthen your emotional bond with her.
Their teeth should be brushed at least twice a week with toothpaste and a toothbrush designed for dogs. Brushing removes plaque and tartar buildup that can cause tooth decay (rarely) and periodontal disease. Dog periodontal disease can lead to pain, tooth loss, bad breath, and other serious illnesses.
Your toenails may need to be checked for growth and cut regularly. Back toenails grow more slowly than front toenails. Generally, a guillotine-style trimmer is best for this task, and competent instructions for accomplishing this can be found online.
The Doberman Pinscher can live between 12 and 15 years with proper nutrition, medical care, and excellent living conditions.
