To love your Cane Corsos how I love mine and only in this way will you know the true love spoken by fairy tales.
THE HEALTH OF CANE CORSO:
The Cane Corso is a very strong dog physically and enjoys very good health. Stoically endure the pain and do not complain almost never.
They are 20 times stronger to withstand pain than we are,
Sometimes you realize that they have something very serious at the end of the disease, they never or almost never complain.
The Cane Corso usually has very few health problems, it is a race that recovered in the 80s in Italy, and there are some problems that the race has not yet overcome.
One of the most common is the so-called ‘Cherry Eye’, which is the term used to refer to a prolapse of the gland of the canine nictitating membrane, known as the third eyelid, when the nictitating membrane prolapses and becomes visible. The ‘cherry eye’ may be more common in puppies, sometimes one in one eye and then the other.
there are corny cane lines more likely to have the cherry eye more than others,
It is very common when parents have the most droopy eyes.
Another problem that large breeds such as Cane Corso can suffer from is hip dysplasia, as there is a rapid increase in weight and body volume in its growth.
It is a malformation of the coxofemoral joint (union of the acetabulum of the hip and the femoral head); that can cause pain and even lameness in the animal that suffers it, and difficulty to sit or climb stairs. The age of presentation varies between 4 months in the most extreme cases and 12 months.
However, before 12 months you can perform the PennHip test where you can specify the probabilities for a puppy to develop dysplasia, but never diagnose it since it is not until 12 months when there is a sufficient development of them. The cases of hip dysplasia, in general, tend to be bilateral.
The presentation of hip dysplasia also involves environmental factors such as diet, intense physical exercise, especially at young ages, overweight and hormonal changes.
Thus, puppies will inherit from their parents (genetic load) a greater or lesser predisposition or vulnerability to develop dysplasia and, depending on their stage of growth (nutrition, exercise rate, growth rate …), they will manifest it in greater or smaller measure.
With the arrival of spring we must be careful and pay attention to the care of our pets. It is at this time when you can suffer different problems with parasites (internal or external), fleas, ticks ect.
especially if the walks that are made with our corso cane are in mountainous areas or if they are made trips to the field. The, lawn is a good crop for them.
There are necklaces and pipettes, we must change them, the pipettes are monthly to avoid flea and tick bites.
so that our cane corso have a good health, it is important the sport, the good feeding, the good walks, always without abusing much in the walks in the puppy’s time.
