Patellar luxation is a condition in which the kneecap slips out of position. This can be painful and may require surgery. Tracheal collapse is a serious condition that can cause respiratory distress. It is common in small dog breeds, and Pug-Havanese mixes are no exception. Heart defects are also common in this breed and can be life threatening if not treated.

Eye diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma are relatively common in Pug-Havanese mixes. Cataracts cause clouding of the eye's lenses, while glaucoma is a condition that increases pressure in the eyeball, which can lead to blindness. Skin infections are also quite common in this breed due to the many skin folds. These infections can be difficult to treat and may require antibiotics. Hip dysplasia is a condition in which the hip joint is not properly formed. This can cause pain and lameness and is common in larger dog breeds.

Although Pug-Havanese mixes are prone to a number of health problems, they can live long and healthy lives with proper care and regular veterinary checkups.
