This is Lotar, a well-behaved Airedale terrier. Notice his handsome red color? This is a rare color in Airedales. Among his many other wonderful qualities, that makes Lotar a special dog.
Name the most common health problems observed in airedale terriers.
1) Hip dysplasia
4) Gastic dilation-volvulus (bloat)
5) Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
In my experience, these are the most common health problems I observe in airedales. Some veterinarians would also include malocclusion (poor alignment of the teeth) and cataracts, although I have not personally seen these problems at a greater rate than in other breeds. Fortunately, Lotar does not suffer from any of these.
