What diseases can occur in Airedale Terrier and Poodle mix.

The Airedale Terrier Poodle mix - often referred to as the Airedoodle or Airdoodle - is a popular hybrid dog breed created by the collision of the two dog breeds. This combination of the smart and playful Airedale Terrier and the adaptable and confident Poodle produces compact size and an endearing character. Although most Airedoodle mixes are generally healthy, there are some diseases that can affect some mixes.

One of the most common diseases of Airedoodle mixes is syringomyelia, also known as SM. This is a neurological condition where fluid becomes trapped in the dog's spine, causing pain, numbness and paralysis. Although SM cannot be predicted, the parents can be bred to prevent it. Other common health problems in Airedoodle mixes include atopy and dysplasia of the hip. Atopy is an allergic reaction of the body that is controlled by an immune system. It is associated with itching, hives, rash, and other symptoms. Dysplasia of the hip is a degeneration of the articular cartilage that can cause the hip to fit poorly, leading to dysfunction, pain and even a lower quality of life for the dog.

Airedoodle mixes are also prone to certain eye diseases, including cataracts and glaucoma. Cataracts are congenital or acquired eye defects that can cause the dog's lens to become cloudy, which can eventually lead to blindness. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can lead to vision loss. It is also advisable to have regular eye exams to monitor your dog's vision health.

Before adopting an Airedoodle mix, obtain all available information about the puppy's parents. Be sure to meet the parents and observe how they behave. Also ask about the family history of the parent dogs to make sure their offspring do not have genetic diseases. By following the above steps, you will help your puppy live a long and happy life.
