Are there any common health issues associated with Cockapoos, Poodles, or Spaniels, and how do you address these concerns in your breeding program?

At Reapmoor Dogs, we understand the importance of maintaining the health and well-being of our beloved Cockapoos, Poodles, and Spaniels. We prioritize the overall health of our dogs by implementing various preventive measures in our breeding program.

One common health issue in these breeds is hip dysplasia, a condition that affects the hip joint and can lead to pain and mobility issues. To address this concern, we ensure that all our breeding dogs undergo thorough hip evaluations, such as X-rays, to identify any signs of hip dysplasia before breeding. By only selecting dogs with healthy hip joints, we significantly reduce the risk of passing on this condition to their offspring.

Another common health issue in these breeds is eye problems, particularly progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) and cataracts. To proactively tackle these concerns, we perform regular eye examinations on our breeding dogs to assess their ocular health and screen for any signs of hereditary eye diseases. By carefully selecting dogs with clear eye test results, we can mitigate the likelihood of passing on these eye conditions to future generations.

Additionally, we are aware that skin allergies can be a prevalent issue in Cockapoos, Poodles, and Spaniels. We strive to minimize this concern by carefully monitoring the diet and environment of our breeding dogs. Providing a balanced and nutritious diet with high-quality ingredients helps support healthy skin and coat, reducing the risk of allergic reactions. Furthermore, we maintain clean and hygienic living conditions for our dogs to minimize exposure to potential irritants and allergens.

By taking these preventative measures, we aim to produce healthy puppies with a lower risk of common health issues associated with Cockapoos, Poodles, and Spaniels. At Reapmoor Dogs, we are committed to breeding responsibly and prioritizing the long-term well-being of our dogs and their future owners.
