Keeping Dachshund Healthy: 5 Issues to Watch Out For
With the proper care, the average dachshund life span can reach 10 to 18 years. However, pet parents must be on the lookout for problems that occur at a higher-than-average rate in the breed. These Dachshund health issues can include the following.
Intervertebral Disk Disease
Dachshund have a condition known as chondrodystrophy, a cartilage development issue which leads to shorter limbs and an increased risk of back problems caused by bulging or ruptured intervertebral disks. Routine activity can result in injuries, especially as dogs age, gain weight and/or lose muscle mass. A disk that presses on the spinal cord can result in loss of limb function, trouble with urinating and defecating, and pain that may or may not resolve with treatment.
All dogs with flat faces, including Dachshund , have a degree of brachycephalic airway syndrome (BOAS), which can lead to noisy breathing, increased effort to breathe, difficulty exercising, a tendency to overheat and gagging. In severe cases, dogs may collapse due to low blood oxygen levels, but most Dachshund have a relatively mild form of BOAS. Like many small dog breeds, Dachshund are at risk for developing a collapsing trachea, which leads to a characteristic “goose honk” cough.

A Dachshund ’s prominent eyes can lead to problems such as excessive drainage of tears (epiphora) and wounds to the eye surface. Loss of vision associated with a degenerative condition called progressive retinal atrophy can be seen in young and middle-aged Dachshund.
Periodontal disease is quite common in Dachshund due to tooth crowding. Routine dental cleanings performed by a veterinarian and home dental care, including daily tooth brushing, are very important to prevent oral pain, tooth loss and infections that can spread to other parts of the body.
