Pugs Overheating

Overheating is the first of several problems that many pugs and their owners have to face. And it’s a serious concern, which you will need to consider if you decide to buy a Pug puppy.

The muzzle of a healthy dog is long in proportion to it’s skull for a reason. It has two very important roles.

The muzzle houses the complex system of ‘turbinates’ which bestow upon dogs the amazing ability to smell tiny traces of substances completely undetectable to man.

More importantly, this muzzle provides a dog with an
extremely efficient cooling system.

Removing the muzzle from a dog seriously impairs that dog’s ability to regulate his own body temperature. Which means that pugs can rapidly overheat in warm conditions. You can find out more about this in Brachycephalic Puppies

If you have a Pug puppy, you can help by ensuring that he or she is never over exercised, or allowed to become too hot. Avoid going for walks in the hot weather, and make sure that you bring some water and have access to shade whenever you take him out.
