First and foremost, it is important to know that English Springer Spaniels are not troubled in general by serious or widespread health problems, other than some of the usual canine illnesses and infectious diseases that can affect the canine population as a whole. Some hereditary (inherited) diseases are, however, known to exist in the English Springer Spaniel, although thankfully, these are not common.
The UK English Spaniel Breed Clubs’ Health Co-ordinators have made available a series of articles and information sheets that will provide you with more information about general and specific health issues that affect the Breed. Please follow the links as listed below.
