Before adopting blue pitbulls as pets, there are some things you must take into consideration. First, you must make sure that you are ready to live with blue pitbulls, because even though they are great companions, they also involve a lot of work and they need a great deal of attention. Then, you must ‘dogproof’ your house, since blue pitbulls are very active and their energy can lead to some minor home damages. Finally, you must get informed on the behavior of blue pitbulls and the possible health problems which might develop. Regarding the last part, here is some useful information regarding blue pitbulls and their most common health problems.
As blue pitbulls have a blueish coloring, their coat is prone to developing health problems related to the skin. They are also more exposed to viral, fungal and bacterial infections. Dermatitis or other forms related to this condition is a very common health problem among blue pitbulls. Also, be aware of the allergies that blue pitbulls might experience. While most of these conditions are related to the blue coat coloring, some of them may be hereditary. If you purchase blue pitbulls from a reputable vendor, make sure that you research the history of their parents, so you will know what to expect and you will not come across unpleasant surprises. You could also ask to see the blue pitbulls’ parents, especially if the dogs you are interested in are still small puppies.
Should any health problem develop, you can relax knowing that they can easily be treated, and at low costs. You just need to take your blue pitbulls to the vet, because only a professional will know which is the adequate course of treatment. Also, not all blue pitbulls will develop skin-related conditions. However, it is best to be prepared, because if anything would happen to your blue pitbulls, I am sure that you will be devastated. Unfortunately, there are no tests you could submit the blue pitbulls you are planning to purchase to, but having them checked by a vet is definitely a great idea.
