Health Issues

The breed is long-lived and hardy, but some dogs may suffer from back problems and genetic eye diseases. They are prone to cardiomyopathy, patellar luxation. These should be noticed as long as regular vet visits are maintained.  Do not overfeed them as the Norwich can put on weight easily.  To minimize the risk of your dog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable Norwich Terrier breeder.

Living Environment

Because a Norwich has strong hunting instincts and typical terrier curiosity, most breeders require fencing as a prerequisite to owning a Norwich puppy or adult. Excessive heat can present problems for many dogs, so shade and water is vital in hotter weather.
