So far, Nova hasn't had any health problems, other than extreme gassiness which I have not been able to fix with diet. Not sure what's causing it. I hope she stays healthy, she has good hips (had them x-rayed a few months back) and I keep her at a healthy weight. Hopefully, Lou will remain a picture of health for the rest of her life
Indiana makes a good point, you can find out a lot by looking at the pedigree and contacting the breeder. Nova was a rescue, but she is AKC registered and I've tracked her pedigree. Lots of hip, eye, and heart problems in her background, so we play the waiting game and I do what I can to contribute to good health (good diet, lots of exercise, good weight, minimal vaccines, etc etc).
