Grooming a Weimaraner is a relatively low-maintenance job. Just brush your pup once a week to remove any loose or dead hair, and clip their nails regularly to prevent them from getting too long. (Overgrown nails can cause discomfort or lead to issues walking.) Because of their long ears, Weimaraners may be more prone to ear infections than other breeds. So, as part of the grooming routine, also check and clean your dog's ears routinely to prevent infections. Dogs need dental care, too—both professional and at-home dental care that includes daily teeth brushing. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for your Weim's overall long-term health.
A Weimaraner puppy or dog can bring a lot of joy. Maintaining a Weimaraner in good health can be expensive. Get savings, deals and cash back at vets and pet stores when you pay for pet care with the Sincere debit card. Personalized just for dog parents.
Also important to know: Weimaraners don't always limit the things they eat to food. For some dogs, rocks are a favorite snack. But eating rocks is harmful and, in some cases, can be deadly. So, keep an eye on your pup and immediately remove any non-food items they try to eat.
