Rat Terrier Health Issues
... Medically and Genetically ...

Luckily at this point and time the Rat Terrier is one of the healthiest and hardiest dogs there is. Few problems plague the Rat Terrier due to the fact that it has only recently been accepted into most registeries as a recognized breed so therefore it has not been inbred and linebreed to an unhealthy state.
As with any breed of dog there will be health problems both medically and genetically that are more common and those that are rare. I will list the more common health problems that are associated with the Rat Terrier Breed.
