Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are generally healthy, sturdy, small dogs. However, as with many other pure bred dogs, there are specific areas of health that can be of concern. We believe that all Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breeders should be knowledgeable in these areas. We also believe that an individual who is looking to become a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owner is a person that has spent the time learning about this breed prior to becoming an ower and is aware of potential health issues.
It is important that you understand these health issues, especially as your pet ages. You are often your dog’s best line of defense against disease, because you’ll be the first to notice any changes in your dog’s behavior or sense of well being.
