Boston Terrier - Special Concerns For This Adorable Breed

Beautiful as they are, Boston Terriers have some genetic traits and defects that you must always be mindful of. In order to keep your dogs' health in tip-top condition and ensure that he leads a healthy and happy life, you must ensure that you are aware of the breeds special requirements and of potential dangers.

There are a fair few illnesses that a Boston, particularly a pure bred, is susceptible to. This is why you should ensure that you get your Boston from a good, reputable breeder who can tell you all about the dog and his family line. You would be surprised at how much your breeder has to do with the Boston's happiness and yours.

Some of these special concerns include:

Genetic illnesses such as: luxating patella (slipping kneecap), heart problems, mange, breathing problems, Cushings syndrome.

Extreme weather sensitivity: Bostons can suffer heat stroke if they are exposed for long periods to extreme heat, stuffiness and humidity. They are also sensitive to extreme cold and must not be exposed for long periods to this weather either. This is one of the reasons that this breed is classed as an indoor breed.

Wheezing: This is caused by the breeds short snout. Although this is part and parcel of a Boston Terrier, excessive wheezing should always be checked out by a vet. You should also take care not to expect excessive activity and exercise from your Boston because of this problem.

Eye problems: This is the result of the Bostons prominent eyes. They are susceptible to associated problems such as lacerations and infections, and must be closely monitored.

Although these concerns must be kept in mind at all times, you can get peace of mind with a little care and attention. Checking your dog on a weekly basis for abnormalities or defects will help to keep infections at bay. Being able to pick up on any alien behaviour from your dog will give you a clue if he is feeling unwell. And taking care in the summer and winter months will enable you to ensure that he is not exposed to temperatures that could prove dangerous to him.
