One of the most common diseases that occur in DWHS is canine progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). This disease causes irreversible visual impairment. It occurs slowly and affects the dog's retina, making it unable to see colors. PRA can usually be diagnosed by a blood test.

Another disease that is often observed is the so-called allergic dermatitis. This disease affects the dog's skin and can be extremely itchy. Symptoms can include irritation of the skin, redness and swelling. To treat Allergic Dermatitis, the cause must be determined, usually through allergy testing.

Hip dysplasia is another condition that occurs with DWHS. In this condition, there is instability or irregularity in the dog's hip joint. This stability can be diagnosed by radiographic examination. Surgery may be necessary to improve the dog's condition.

Other conditions seen in DWHS include epilepsy, anemia, and eye problems such as cataracts.

Since all of these conditions can have serious consequences, you should have your DWHS examined by a veterinarian on a regular basis and monitor him closely for early signs of disease. With proper care and regular maintenance, your dog can have a happy and healthy life.
