A recent study from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), in collaboration with The Kennel Club, has found that the most common health problems in dogs are dental disease, obesity and ear infections. It is hoped that these findings will encourage owners to help develop early habits during ownership to look after their dog’s teeth, ears and bodyweight, in order to help them live the happiest and healthy lives.

As part of this collaboration, The Kennel Club has developed an online resource for dog owners to find out more about these common conditions in dogs. Specifically, the causes, clinical signs, diagnosis and management of the most common disorders identified in the study (gum disease, ear infections, obesity, overgrown nails, anal sac impaction, diarrhoea, vomiting, lameness and arthritis) are discussed.
