Common Aussie Health Problems

Most Aussies live around 12 to 15 years. You can help ensure your Aussie survives to the higher end of the average lifespan by being aware of common health issues and having them treated if they arise.

Eye Problems – eye issues account for the most common health problems encountered in Aussies. Cataracts are particularly common, with Collie Eye Anomoly being another issue often seen. Unfortunately there's no treatment for Collie Eye Anomoly and it's hereditary, so there's nothing you can do to stop it. Cataracts are a problem that involves the lens of the eye becoming cloudy, making it difficult for the dog to see – it can develop to the point of blindness in some dogs. In the case of cataracts, they're not always the result of genetics, so you may be able to get your dog treatment from a vet.

Iris coloboma is another common eye problem, and it's also inherited. It involves a development problem which causes the dog to be born without a part of the iris – the colored part of the eye. It's not serious, but it can cause discomfort for the dog.

Dog Quote of the Week

"Everyone knows dogs. Most people love dogs. I think most American families probably have a dog, but I don't think people really realize or understand just how wonderful and special dogs are."
