Common dog illnesses

Like any animal, dogs are prone to getting sick from time to time. It's important to understand the common ailments they may pick up so that you can recognise the signs.

Being clued up about dog illnesses means we can all do more to protect our beloved pets from getting these diseases in the first place, helping them to live healthier and happier lives.

That's why we've funded VetCompass PhD research to find out the disorders that most commonly affect our dogs. Find out what they are in our infographic! If you have any health concerns about your dog, please get in touch with your local vet.
