A Raggle lives between 12 to 15 years.
Like other dogs, Raggle also has some common health problems. Most of the diseases are inherited from the original pure breeds, Beagle and Rat Terrier. Most common health problems that affect Raggle include:
Intervertebral Disk Disease
Intervertebral Disk Disease affects your pooch’s spinal column. The disease causes soreness in the back and neck and some sensation concerns. This condition may also affect your pooch’s bowel movement and causes paralysis at worst.
Also known as Glaucoma, the disease affects the dog’s eye due to a damaged optic nerve. This condition is brought up by incorrect draining aqueous humor. Aqueous humor is a liquid continuously produced within the eye. You can tell your four-legged furry friends are suffering from Glaucoma if you notice cloudiness, teary and red eyes.
This is another common health condition in Raggles. It commonly occurs when the hybrid’s elbow joint dislocates, thereby impacting its mobility. Although this condition is inherited, it can be treated through surgery.
As the name implies, Beagle dwarfism is inherited from the Beagle parent breed. Affected Raggles appear smaller than they ought to be.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
PRA is another inherited disease. This usually leads to blindness in the dog as it gets olders. It is important to question and seek information on the parent’s health before buying a puppy.
Other common diseases you can expect in Raggles include hypothyroidism, epilepsy, patellar luxation, incorrect bites, demodectic mange, and allergies.
