Common poodle health problems

Originating from Germany, poodles are considerate to be the second most intelligent dog breed. The problem is that as beautiful and smart as they are, they also suffer from different diseases.

One life threatening disease is caused by the insufficient production of adrenal hormone from the adrenal gland and it affects the salt and potassium in the body. Unbalance appears. Some of the symptoms can be vomiting and frequent gastrointestinal disturbances. The unbalanced level of potassium that are noticed in the poodle can cause him to suffer severe shock when stressed and can even lead to death, so this disease should be treated immediately.
