Rhodesian Ridgeback Breed Health information

This page is designed to provide you with an overview of common known health issues in our breed.

In general our breed is a healthy breed with little health issues recorded. But care and testing for genetic faults and health issues is strongly recommended by all Rhodesian Ridgeback Clubs. You can find more information about this in our Code of Ethics. This will ensure the health status of our breed will continue to be stable over the coming years.
