Health Information

Attention all Manchester Terrier owners & breeders!  Health Survey Data is now available!
Please check out the details here!

Though the Manchester Terrier is, on a whole, a relatively hearty breed, as with any breed of dog certain health problems should be noted. This page provides links to articles from a variety of sources regarding health problems related to the Manchester Terrier.  Anyone thinking of buying a Manchester Terrier of either variety should discuss the potential for such problems, as well as preventative measures employed, with their individual breeder (for more information see the Puppy Buyer's Guide).
