The way life works can be rough, sometimes. There are curve balls thrown at us (and our dogs) that none of us can see coming. We are, of course, talking about dog diseases. While it could be said that there are some very specific diseases and afflictions that affect certain breeds more than others (example, deafness in dalmatians), there are certain dog diseases that can affect your dog, no matter the breed. Though it can be daunting and harrowing to talk about, we would rather you all be informed about these dog diseases in the slight chance you may ever need to deal with it. Here are ten dog diseases common to all breeds.
