Brown Standard Poodle Health

Brown Standard Poodles are susceptible to certain diseases that are common in dogs. But, in general, Brown standard poodles lead a long, healthy life. 

Health Overview

Basic Health   Low to Medium 
Weight Gain Possibilities   High   
Size   Medium 

Hip Dysplasia: Hip Dysplasia is a painful condition caused when the bones of the rear legs don’t fit properly in the joints. While some dogs show symptoms, most dogs won’t have any visible symptoms. Hip Dysplasia is mostly hereditary, but factors such as injuries, excessive weight gain, wrong exercises can also cause hip dysplasia. Though this condition is life-threatening, treatments are ranging from medication to replacement of the hip through surgeries. To prevent this condition, avoid breeding Brown Standard poodles with hip dysplasia parentage, undertake regular checkups.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy: It is a degenerative disease affecting the photoreceptors of the eye. The affected dog will eventually be blind to the deterioration of the photoreceptors cell.

Legg Calve Perthes: This is a hereditary condition resulting from the degeneration of the femur in the bone joints of the hip. Legg Calve Perthes is common in small breed dogs. If the severity worsens, it can lead to arthritis or the inability to walk.

Corneal Dystrophy: Corneal Dystrophy is also an inherent disease that can affect the layers of the cornea in the eyes. It is not a painful condition, and symptoms such as forming an opaque layer are seen in some Brown Standard poodles.

Epilepsy:  The often-inherited Idiopathic epilepsy frequently causes seizures, and can occur in moderate and extreme seizures. Unusual actions, such as running desperately as if being chased, stumbling, or hiding, may signify a seizure. Seizures are alarming, but dogs with idiopathic epilepsy have a very positive long-term prognosis. Seizures may be caused by various things other than idiopathic epilepsy, including metabolic conditions, respiratory diseases of the brain, cancers, toxin poisoning, extreme head trauma.

Sebaceous Adenitis: Standard poodles are more prone to this condition, and it is believed that half of all Standard Poodles are carriers or infected by the disease. Sebaceous Adenitis is a hereditary condition that is difficult to diagnose, and so it is often mistaken as hypothyroidism, asthma, or other illnesses. The sebaceous gland produces sebum that protects the coat. In sebaceous adenitis, the sebaceous gland will get inflamed and lead to the death of the dog. This is a very common condition with symptoms including hair loss, rough, scaly skin on the dog’s head, neck, back.  In severe cases, secondary skin infections and skin thickening can also occur. The vet will take a skin biopsy to confirm the condition and provide appropriate treatment.

Von Willebrand’s Disease: This is a hereditary blood condition that inhibits the blood’s capacity to clot. Excessive bleeding following an operation or surgery is the primary symptom. Some signs and effects include nosebleeds, bleeding gums, and intestinal or bowel bleeding. There is still no solution, and the only remedy is a blood transfusion from normal dogs. New therapies, including medication, are being researched. The majority of dogs with von Willebrand’s disease can live normal lives. Your dog should be tested for the disease by a veterinarian.

Brown Standard Poodles need good quality dog food or homemade food depending upon the dog’s age, weight, and health condition. It is recommended to consult a veterinarian to form a diet plan.
