Doberman Pinscher: Health Issues & Personality
Doberman Pinscher:

Like all short coated dogs, the Doberman Pincscher is prone to intestinal diseases particularly in cold weather, keep the dog moving at all times; dry it thoroughly when it comes back indoors.  Rigorous daily brushing removes dead hair from the coat, soothes the muscles, stimulates the circulation, calms the nervous system, and aids digestion.  The young Doberman is especially susceptible to a skin parasite called demodectic mange which shows up as greyish bald patches around the eyes and on the elbows and body.  This disease must be treated by a veterinarian.  Inspect the dog regularly for staphylococcus; this bacterium produces clusters of blisters, especially between the toes.  In North America, the Doberman's ears are frequently cropped; this should be done when the dog is 10-12 weeks old.  The Doberman is one of the best guard dogs.
