The health of your beldlington terrier

We know that because you care too much about your dog, you want to take good care of her. That’s why we summarize the health issues we will discuss with you about the life of your Bedlington terrier. By understanding the specific health problems of the Bellington, we can customize a preventive health program to observe and hope to prevent some predictable risks.

Many diseases and health conditions are inherited, which means they are related to the breed of pet. There is a general consensus among canine genetic researchers and veterinary practitioners that the conditions described here have significant incidence rate and/or effects in this breed. It doesn’t mean your dog has these problems, it just means she’s more dangerous than other dogs. We will describe the most common problems with a Bellington Terrier to let you know what will happen to her in the future. Of course, we can’t cover all the possibilities here, so if you find any abnormal signs or symptoms, please feel free to contact us.

Dental diseases

Dental disease is the most common chronic disease in pets. At the age of two, 80% of dogs are affected by dental disease. Unfortunately, your Bellington Terrier is more prone to dental problems than other dogs. It starts with the accumulation of tartar on the teeth and develops into infections of the gums and roots. If we do not prevent or treat dental disease, your partner will lose her teeth and may damage her kidney, liver, heart and joints. In fact, your Bellington terrier’s life could be shortened by one to three years! We brush your dog’s teeth regularly and let you know what you can do at home to keep those white teeth clean.


Bellington Terriers are susceptible to bacteria and viruses – all dogs can – such as parvovirus, rabies and canine distemper. Many of these infections can be prevented by vaccination, and we will recommend vaccines based on the diseases we see in the region, her age and other factors.


Obesity is an important health problem in Bellington terriers. It is a serious disease that can cause or worsen joint problems, metabolic and digestive disorders, back pain and heart disease. Although it’s easy to give your friend food when she looks at you with affectionate eyes, you can “love her” with leftovers and dog food. Instead, give her a hug, brush her hair or teeth, play a game with her, or take her for a walk. She’s going to get better, and so will you!


All kinds of bugs and bugs can invade your Bedlington body from the inside out. Everything from fleas and lice to ear mites can invade her skin and ears. Hookworms, Ascaris lumbricoides, heartworms and Whipworms can enter her body system in a variety of ways: drinking dirty water, walking on contaminated soil, or being bitten by infected mosquitoes. There are parasites that can infect you or your family, and that’s something everyone is worried about. For your dog friends, these parasites can cause pain, discomfort, and even death, so it’s important that we test them regularly. We will also recommend the necessary preventive drugs to keep her healthy.
