About 5% of all dogs suffer from seizures at some point in their lives, but in Beagle mixes, the rate is closer to 10%.

Hip dysplasia is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors and is unfortunately quite common in Beagle mixes. The best way to prevent hip dysplasia is to have the hips of the parent dogs examined by a veterinarian before breeding.
