Clumber Spaniels are prone to some health problems, notably hip displasia, eye entropian, and on occasion disc problems, due to their long backs. None of our Clumbers have suffered from hip dysplasia and none of our present Clumbers have suffered from disc problems. Clumbers can inherit and thus be effected by Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Phosphatase (PDP1) and Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC). We own a canine genetic testing biotechnology company (PetHelix) and test all of our adult dogs for each of these diseases - all are clear of the above diseases!
We inoculate our puppies prior to joining their new parents for the following: Canine distemper-Adenovirus Type 2-Parainfluenza-Paravirus (3 set of shots); Canine Leptospirosis, and; Canine Bordetella (Kennel cough). Puppies can now have their Rabies shot at 12 weeks of age - which is when we allow our puppies to leave with their new family. Many veterinarians will advise that puppies and adults should not have multiple shots at any given time. We also deworm the pups at least 4 times prior to them leaving us. It is best to collect a fecal sample prior to the pup's first visit with his or her doctor.
