Some dog owners are afraid that if the designer breed parents have some diseases that automatically are transferred to their litter. That doesn’t work that way.

However, there are some health issues that may arise because of some health conditions or because your breed is predisposed to certain diseases.

Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

The disease touches hip joints. Due to this condition, the blood circulation level in the leg decreases. Usually, this occurs to puppies of a 4-6 month age. It can be healed through surgery.

Patellar Luxation
