Staffordshire Bull Terrier's Health Insurance

Staffies are one of the oldest breeds of dogs that were originally breed fro bull baiting, as a breed they are linked to the bull terrier breed, American Staffordshire terrier and the American pit bull terrier. Staffies are a medium sized breed that are seen as an all round dog, they are intelligent, loyal and trustworthy as well as being great with children.

The main health problem that is linked to the breed is melanoma, which is a form of skin cancer and is often found their stomachs and is a result of their love for lying in the sun. As a breed they have also been linked to the hereditary illnesses; hydroxglutaric aciduria and cataracts. Lucky there are tests available to test for both illnesses so treatment is offered if the tests shows up either of the diseases. Both of these illnesses are linked with poor breeding so you can try to prevent your Staffie from suffering from them by making sure they have been breed properly.

Some Staffies have also been known to suffer from double eyelashes, this is when an extra eyelash grows inwards towards their eye, rubbing on the eye ball causing them discomfort, and this is easily treated by the vets.

As puppies Staffies should be wormed no later than 3 weeks old and they will need to be wormed at least twice more before they reach 8 weeks old and go to their new homes, it’s also important to remember to worm the mother as she’ll be cleaning them up during this initial time.

On the whole Staffies are a healthy breed; they require regular exercise to keep their muscular bodies in shape as well as keeping them healthy. They are a breed that is easy to train, particularly at a young age and they will happily play with children, who they are particularly gentle and loving too.
