First time GSD owner - health emergencies to watch for?
Hi all, I have my first GSD pup, he is 10 wks old. There is an overwhelming amount of info about potential GSD health problems and I don't want to give myself any more anxiety reading over it all, I am a worry wart. Can any experienced GSD owners give me a run down on signs and symptoms that I should watch out for? I don't want to accidentally overlook anything that could be an early warning sign just because I wasn't aware of it. For example - vomitting. When is it something to worry about? I don't want to run to the vet every time he throws up, but I also don't want to ignore any important signs. I have already read too much info and now am worried about all kinds of terrible things. Also, if anyone can recommend a vet in Central Florida that is especially knowledgeable about GSD that would be awesome!
