Westie Health Issues
Westies are generally a hardy breed, but as with all purebred dogs, Westies can have health problems more common to their breed. Some of the more common issues we have seen are: skin problems, aggression, cancer, Addisons Disease, Cushings Disease, etc. More information about Westie Health can be found at:
Scottie Health Issues:
Scotties have very few genetic issues, but some may be predisposed to what is commonly termed as “Scottie Cramp”. This is brought on with stress and affects the dogs' gait to the point where he may trip and fall. This is only a temporary loss of muscular control. Other issues include bleeding disorders, epilepsy, cancer and skin conditions.
