On taking care of your Shih Tzu Pekingese Mix dog, we recommend a healthy mix of suitable exercise, recommended nutrition, and appropriate supplements.
Shih Tzu Pekingese Mix dogs love to walk, and your canine needs at least two daily walks or runs of 10 to 15 minutes each. Yours is also a very playful but moderate energy dog that does not need lots of exercises. Your dog will therefore expend most of the energy playing in the yard or a bigger apartment.
Expect repeated invitations to play, and engaging in different classic doggie games provides sufficient exercise. Take your canine for a jog if they like running, but avoid rigorous or exacting activities that make it difficult for the dog to breathe or cool down.
A Shinese does not eat much. We recommend 1 cup of high-quality dog food served in two equal meals in the mornings and evenings to allow for proper digestion.
Avoid table scraps, sugars, carbohydrates, salt, and artificial ingredients as treats because the high calories and fats can cause weight gain.
Get a high-quality kibble suitable for doggie’s size and activity levels, like Pet Plate’s Barkin’ Beef meals, a high-protein and grain-free delicious beef recipe. Similarly, provide a daily multivitamin with minerals, fatty acids, and essential vitamins like vitamin C to reduce inflammation and promote cognitive aging.
You should also invest in dental water additives to improve the dog’s oral hygiene and dental health. Buy a special feeding dish as your Shinese would struggle to eat from a regular bowl given their flatter face.
