Performance of excessive exercise in dogs.
Excessive exercise of the dog may cause physical discomfort and even physical damage, as shown in the following:
After exercise, the dog will be sluggish, weak in limbs, and even tremble when walking, and will not be willing to exercise.
The dog’s appetite decreases, but the amount of water it drinks will increase instead. It keeps drinking, and his tongue sticks out and keeps panting.
The dog’s paw pads are worn, and even bleeding, tearing, redness, peeling, etc., or much thinner than normal. And if it is infected, it can also cause swelling or pus.
Muscle pain and stiffness are another manifestation of excessive exercise in a dog. The dog will not like to move, and may even suffer from exertional rhabdomyolysis.
Strenuous exercise can cause joint damage in dogs, including muscle strain, sprains, torn meniscus and torn ligaments. Longer and short dog breeds and older dogs are more prone to arthritis.
If it is excessive exercise in the hot summer, dogs are prone to heat stroke, especially short-nosed dogs, dehydration, shock and even risk of illness.
Therefore, dog exercise is necessary, but moderate exercise is the key, and the owner must grasp it well.
