Healthy breeds of dogs get sick relatively rarely and are considered to be very robust. Mostly these are breeds that were bred as working dogs.
However, one should pay special attention to the fact that healthy dog breeds also come from reputable breeders. Inbreeding can also cause serious health problems with these breeds.
In addition, it is important that a serious breeder examines the puppies for hereditary diseases, which can occur in some dogs in old age. In general, however, healthy dog breeds are very resistant. Nevertheless, one must pay attention to sufficient care and a varied diet with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
