Health Issues

Some bloodlines are prone to respiratory ailments, heart disease (MVD), slipped stifle, patella luxation, cataracts, inguinal hernias, eye problems and ear infections, all of which can be monitored by frequent vet visits. The eyes and ears should be cleaned to avoid some of these problems. Like many other short-faced breeds, the English Toy Spaniel may wheeze and snore. He/she may have trouble breathing in hot weather or with over-exertion, because of its short muzzle. To minimize the risk of your English Toy Spaniel developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a spaniel puppy from a reputable breeder.

Living Environment

An apartment is adequate if some form of exercise is provided. Owners should be patient, calm leaders who want to enjoy a lap dog. They should be protected from extreme temperatures. This breed is relatively inactive indoors, and will do okay without a yard.
