Dogue de Bordeaux Health Issues
Hip Dysplasia: A common disease where a malformation in the hip joint results in the joint rubbing and grinding. This can lead to irritation, pain and impaired walking ability.
Bloat: When a dogs stomach fills with food, fluid or gas, making it expand and put pressure against other organs, as well as compromising blood flow. Large breed dogs with narrow, deep chests are the highest at risk. This is increased when dogs eat very quickly as they can swallow air that they may be unable to release later.
Arthritis: A painful inflammatory condition that is generally characterised by deterioration of the cartilage between the joints.
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome: A medical term that relates to multiple upper airway problems experienced in short-nosed, flat-faced breeds. These issues are due to the physical characteristics of these breeds, such as narrowed nostrils, an abnormally small windpipe or an overly long, soft palate.
