Pugs are a loving, hearty breed of dogs. They are friendly, energetic, and loyal to their owners. No matter how well we care for them, pugs are still susceptible to some illnesses and conditions. Many of these can be prevented or dealt with; and, we at DFWPRC want to make sure you have all the information you need to keep your pug happy and healthy.

Please remember that none of this information should be considered a substitute for proper veterinary care.
