Lancashire Heeler Health


This is a little more tricky to deal with as signs of this problem rarely show in a dog until they are at least 3 years old, by which time the affected dog could have had litters and some of the pups from them could also have produced litters themselves. If a quality male shows Affected he could be sire of many puppies by this time.

For the potential pet owner.

The risk of your pet contracting Lens Luxation from our kennels is percentagely very low indeed (we can only talk of our kennel and in no way imply others are higher risk, that is for you to discuss with the Kennel you decide to buy from), but, like any risk, it is still there and we want to make you aware of this.

In the main the Lancashire Heeler is a very healthy little dog and all breeds of dog have related health problems, we are just being open and upfront about ours to help you know all there is to know about this fantastic little dog

Until there is a DNA test for this eye problem breeders must take great care when choosing there matings.

Breeders also have a responsibility to one another and must tell the truth about their affected dogs, so each one of us can make informed decisions when choosing a mating.

Any comments or questions on the above are more than welcome. I will be happy to add any points I have missed.
