Pug Health Testing

Recommended Posts

I don't believe there is any mandatory testing done, although it's been a while since I've looked into it and it could have changed.

Pugs can and do have multiple health issues. Some worse than others. You cannot breed a pug without some degree of brachycephlic syndrome as this issue comes with the branch skull shape.

If your friend is looking for a beautiful affectionate dog, that will be indoors and they're prepared for the fact it's not a dog they can drag out in the heat of the day for a walk, or take for a 3km run, then they'll be fine.

Pugs are not for everyone though. They shed like demons, snort, fart and generally smell more than most breeds, and will cost the average owner far more in vet fees than many others breeds.
