Boxer’s Health Insurance

Boxers are a breed that resulted from crossing the English bulldog and the now-extinct Bullenbessiers. First bred in 1895, they have become one of the most popular breeds of dogs to have as pets. They are a very bright dog that loves to play, gets on great with children and is extremely loyal. They won’t trust stranger’s easily, however they are known for being quite headstrong which means that they need good, consistent training in place to keep them under control.

In general, if given enough exercise and a healthy diet, they should live between ten and 13 years old. However there are some illnesses that have been linked with the breed such as cancer and heart conditions. Aortic Stenosis is a serious condition which occurs when the aortic valve becomes too narrow and begins to limit the flow of blood to the heart. They are also known to suffer from Boxer Cardiomyopathy, so-called because it is almost exclusive to this breed. This disease affects the muscles around the heart and it can cause them to faint, and in the most serious cases it can result in sudden death.           

When you first acquire your Boxer pup you need to be careful not to over-exercise them as this can affect their growing bones. However, you will find, when they have stopped growing, that they become the perfect running partner as they have the ability to run for long periods of time. If you have a Boxer you also have to watch that their heads aren’t exposed to too much heat due to them having flat heads.

In general they are a healthy breed with 21.5% of registered deaths put down to old age. To ensure your dog stays fit and healthy, you can have them checked over by your vets and have tests to monitor for possible health conditions.
