The Alaskan Malamute is a sturdy breed and although some dogs have been known to experience issues such as joint dysplasia, hypothyroidism, chondrodysplasia, and von Willebrand’s disease, most of these dogs live full and healthy lives without any serious issue. Annual checkups with your veterinarian will play an important role in helping you to keep on top of your dog’s well being. The National Breed Club has also suggested that you speak with your vet about hip and ophthalmologist evaluations, as well as polyneuropathy DNA tests to help you better understand and ensure the health of your Malamute. Always be sure to contact your veterinarian right away if you have any serious concern about the health of your dog. Your Malamute will appreciate the loving care that you provide for them and they will be sure to find ways of showing it that will continue to bring joy to your life.
