The average lifespan of a blue nose pitbull is 12–14 years. This breed has a relatively long life expectancy, and with proper care, some dogs of this breed have even reached the age of 20.
To help your blue nose pitbull live a long, happy, and healthy life:
- Don’t allow your dog to become overweight. As with people, obesity causes a range of serious health issues. Resist the adorable whining and pleading – ration those snacks.
- Provide the best quality food, avoiding additives, fillers, etc.
- Keep an eye out for hip dysplasia in older blue nose pitbulls. This is a painful condition that could limit your dog’s mobility.
- Schedule regular veterinary check-ups to spot any conditions before they become serious.
- Train your pitbull well and provide plenty of exercise to help them burn off their energy. In addition, games and mental stimulation will help avoid destructive behaviors which could develop due to boredom or frustration.
