The English Setter is considered to be a predominantly healthy breed, and most of these dogs live full and healthy lives. However, some of these dogs may still experience some issues such as joint dysplasia, bloat, stomach torsion, ear infections and thyroid conditions. Be sure to speak with the breeder about health screenings to get the best idea of what to look out for in your dog. Annual checkups with your veterinarian will play an important role in helping you to keep on top of your Setter’s health, as well as to identify and treat any issues they may experience. The National Breed Club also suggest that you speak with your vet about hip, elbow and thyroid evaluations, as well as BAER testing for your English Setter to help you gain a better understanding of their health, especially as they age. Always be sure to contact your vet right away if you have any serious concerns about the health of your English Setter. Your pup will be grateful for all the loving care that you provide for them and they will be sure to find plenty of ways to show it that will continue to bring you joy.
