Miniature Schnauzer's Health Insurance

The Miniature Schnauzer is the smallest of the three recognised Schnauzer breeds in the UK. This breed originated in the mid 19th century as a result of crossing larger Schnauzer dogs with smaller breeds. They are popular as family pets because of their easy-going nature and their loving and friendly personalities. Their smaller stature makes them easier to handle and carry than larger dogs.

Miniature Schnauzers, just like the standard breed of Schnauzer dogs, are often described as energetic, free-spirited and alert. These character traits mean they like to explore in hedges and have a good run about. Like all dogs, when exploring off their lead they might pick up a few scratches. It is always a good idea to have pet insurance cover - just in case.

Miniature Schnauzers are, in general, a healthy breed. Problems tend to occur if they have a poor diet and become overweight. This can happen due to them being a small breed of dog, so it is important that they have a balanced healthy diet.

One of the health issues that can occur as a result of becoming overweight is hyperlipidemia. This is when a high level of lipoproteins and/or lipids appear in the blood. These fatty molecules can lead to heart problems and increase the chances of getting pancreatitis.

As a breed they are known to sometimes suffer from Comedone syndrome. This is where bumps of pus form on their backs, but it can be treated through tablets. They can also suffer from problems like bladder stones.

They are a breed that requires regular grooming. Particular attention should be paid to their eyes and ears in order to prevent infections developing.
