West Highland White Terrier's Health Insurance

West Highland’s are also known as Westies and are noticeable for their white coat. As a breed they were first bred to hunt out foxes and badgers for their owners, as a breed now they are popular for use as promotion of products including; Cesar dog food and Black & White whiskey. They are a fun and happy breed of dog that will be very loyal to its family.

However Westies are also known from suffering from dry skin problems and allergies. This is something that can easily be prevent by only washing them once a month – the more you wash them the more likely they are to suffer from skin problems. You also need to brush them frequently; this will keep them clean as well as evening out the natural oils in their coat.

In average the breed tends to live between the ages of 12 – 17 years old, they are a breed that needs to get their sleep, generally around 12 hours a night, they will also nap throughout the day. As puppies the breed is often linked to suffering from ‘lions jaw’ this means they will suffer from a number of different bone changes in their skull and jawbone.

The above health issues are the only ones linked with the breed which shows that they are in general a pretty healthy breed and will make a great addition to your family. Even though they aren’t linked to a high number of illnesses it is still worth getting a good insurance behind them, lifetime insurance is always a good idea, this means you won’t have to renew/change ever year, you can simply forget about it unless you need to use it!
