German Shorthaired Pointer Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 13-15 years — our German Shorthaired Pointers for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Shorthaired Pointer puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

German Shorthaired Pointer puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Cancer

Some of the most common health concerns for German Shorthaired Pointers include hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and cancer. Hip and elbow dysplasia are both degenerative joint conditions that can cause pain and mobility problems.

Cancer is also a serious concern for German Shorthaired Pointers, with the breed having a higher than average incidence of certain types of cancer, such as lymphoma and hemangiosarcoma. Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken to help reduce the risk of these health concerns. For example, German Shorthaired Pointers should be fed a healthy diet and given regular exercise to help maintain their joint health.

With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Shorthaired Pointer the best possible chance at a long and healthy life.

Shorthaired Pointer Puppies Coat & Coat Care

The German Shorthaired Pointer has a short, dense coat that is water-resistant and easy to care for. The coat is typically a solid color, though it can also be liver-and-white or black-and-white.

Weekly brushing will help to remove dead hair and keep the coat healthy. The coat should be trimmed around the feet and ears to prevent matting. German Shorthaired Pointers also need their nails trimmed regularly. When bathing your Shorthaired Pointer, use a mild shampoo made specifically for dogs. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid skin irritation. German Shorthaired Pointers are an active breed, so they may need more frequent bathing than other dogs.
