HEALTH ISSUES

Curly Coated Retrievers are a robust breed with average life expectancies of 9-14 years. With responsible breeding programmes and care we are striving to increase this life expectancy even further.

With all pure-bred dogs however there are some health issues that potential owners must be aware of.

Please ask your breeder about the following:

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Eye problems
  • Exercise Induced Collapse
  • Bloat
  • Epilepsy
