The Toy Poodle breed can suffer from:
- Patellar luxation
- Legg-Perthes disease
- Progressive retinal atrophy which is an inherited disorder where part of the eye degenerates and wastes away which can result in blindness.
- Distichiasis¹ which is an often painful condition where small eyelashes grow from the inside of the eyelid, rubbing on the surface of the eye.
Priority Kennel Club health schemes and testing:
- Eye screening scheme
- DNA testing for progressive rod cone degeneration- progressive retinal atrophy which tests whether or not a dog has the potential to be affected by this condition.
