STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A healthy dog is a happy dog but some are prone to disorders such as hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism and eye problems that can be genetic
  • Ancestral hardiness can be seen in many of today’s breeds, even if the dogs are no longer sheepherders, dog sled pullers or retrievers
  • Regular exercise, a modified vaccine protocol, species-appropriate healthy food designed for their bodies, lots of love and positive reinforcement go a long way toward helping your dog live a long, healthy life
