Beagle's Health Insurance

Beagles are medium-sized dogs and are classified under the Hound group of breeds. They share some characteristics with Foxhounds, al though they have shorter legs.

Beagles are a breed with a great sense of smell and were originally used for hare and rabbit tracking. Today they can act as sniffer dogs.

They are popular as family pets because they have a gentle and happy nature. As a breed they have few genetic health problems.

Because of their heightened sense of smell you may find that they can become easily distracted. This will probably be most noticeable when you are out walking them. Their passion for following a scent trail can sometimes get them into scrapes - but they are a robust breed who nine times out of 10 will be fine.

Some Beagles have been known to develop epilepsy, but in most cases this can be treated through medication from your vet. Dwarfism is also a health problem that has been linked to this breed in the past. Puppies affected are much slower to develop which often results in them having weak legs and a crooked back.

Beagles have long ears, which don’t always get the required airflow through them and this can result in ear infections. You should also check their eyes on a regular basis to make sure that they are clean and to avoid any infections. Ingrowing eyelashes can be a severely uncomfortable affliction and, if the problem persists, surgery is an option.

Beagles tend to live for an average 10-15 years - which is similar to other breeds of their size. Keeping an eye on them and making sure they stay fit and healthy is the best way of making sure they don’t getting any serious illnesses.
