Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Doberman Pinscher with a Sensitive Stomach

Naturally, the Doberman has a long, slender tail and floppy ears. The breed was developed in Germany by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, after whom the breed was named, for the express purpose of personal protection. Dobermans are highly intelligent and obedient, making them very receptive to training. When training your dog, treats are of the utmost importance, and if your dog has a sensitive stomach, try to avoid biscuits that contain gluten, as gluten can be hard to digest. Instead, try using a dog food with real meat. The Doberman is known for being aggressive, but as with all dogs, that’s simply not the case. A poorly trained guard dog or attack dog might be aggressive, but a well-trained Doberman used aggression only as directed or as intended. That being said, while the Doberman is a loyal and loving companion to those it knows and likes, it may be standoffish with strangers, as per its training.

The Doberman Pinscher, or just Doberman, is an iconic dog breed. Known for their size, strength, and prowess as an intimidating guard dog, the breed ranges in size from medium to large and is fairly muscular. They’re known for their long snouts and markings on the muzzle, above the eyes, on the chest, on the legs and paws, and under the tail. They’re also known for their erect, pointed ears and short, stubby tail, but these are the result of cropping the ears and docking the tail to improve the efficiency of its guard dog duties. While this is traditional and common practice in much of the world, it is illegal in some countries for ethical reasons.

The Doberman is prone to a number of health concerns, some worse than others. It’s the breed that’s the most at risk for cardiomyopathy and prostatic diseases. The risk of cardiomyopathy is so high relative to that of other breeds that 40% of all diagnoses in dogs are attributed to Dobermans, while the second most likely breed to contract this disease is the German Shepherd at only 13%. The effects of cardiomyopathy is also more pronounced in Dobermans. While the life expectancy of most dogs diagnosed is eight months, a Doberman’s life expectancy with cardiomyopathy is only month months. The disease may cause a sudden, inexplicable death or lead to congestive heart failure. The former is more common in females, while the latter is more common in males. Dobermans are also prone to serious conditions like cervical vertebral instability, and they are also prone to less serious conditions such as hip dysplasia and hypothyroidism.
