GENERAL HEALTH OF CAVALIERS
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are robust little dogs and generally enjoy good health, but there can be issues, particularly with their hearts. We select our stock very carefully and none of our dogs take cardiac medication or have had surgery to correct a heart condition. Every possible care is taken in the breeding of our dogs, but there are no guarantees. Many Cavaliers eventually pass away with heart issues, and we consider a lifespan of around ten years to be average for this breed. Inexperienced Cavalier owners may have expectations different to this, but we believe that you and the dog will be happier and enjoy your time together more, if you have realistic expectations. If health issues arise, please be sure to contact your veterinarian at the earliest opportunity, seek a second opinion if you have any doubts, and remember to notify us so that we can adjust our breeding program accordingly.
