There are many web sites that contain a great deal of information about health issues in Scottish Terriers.
Some of the diseases are listed below.
We recommend visiting the CSTC or the STCA for the latest details on a condition.
It should be understood that responsible breeding, which includes knowing the problem(s) that one of the breeding twosome may carry, goes a long way in eliminating or perpetuating a disease. If a Scottie is known to carry the gene for a given problem, that dog should not be used in a breeding program. Proper veterinarian testing can determine most of these issues.
