Mini Dachshund Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 12-14 years — our Mini Dachshunds for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Miniature Dachshund puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Miniature Dachshunds puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Intervertebral Disc Disease
  •    Von Willebrand’s Disease
  •    Dental Issues
  •    Epilepsy
  •    Thyroid Problems
  •    Allergies

Some of the most common health concerns for Mini Dachshunds include intervertebral disc disease, von Willebrand’s disease, and epilepsy. Intervertebral disc disease is a condition that affects the discs in the spine, and it can be painful and debilitating. Von Willebrand’s disease is a bleeding disorder that can be life-threatening. Epilepsy is a neurological condition that can cause seizures.

With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Mini Dachshund the best possible chance at a long and healthy life. Finding a Miniature Dachshund puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can also dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions.

Miniature Dachshund Puppies Coat & Coat Care

The coat of the Mini Dachshund is one of their most distinctive features. It is a double coat, with a dense, soft undercoat and a coarse, protective outer coat. The outer coat is waterproof and helps to protect the dog from extreme weather conditions. The undercoat is insulating and helps to keep the dog’s skin healthy. The coat should be brushed regularly to remove dead hair and prevent mats from forming.

It is also important to give your Mini Dachshund a bath on a regular basis, using a mild shampoo designed specifically for dogs. With proper care, the coat of your Mini Dachshund will stay healthy and looking its best.
