Neapolitan Mastiff Health Issues PDF Print E-mail

The Neapolitan Mastiff is a giant breed and is prone to several health problems.  No breeder can absolutley guarentee you that your puppy will never develop health problems.  Most breeders have no desire to ever intentionally breed a dog that will develop problems and of course no puppy buyer intentionally buys a puppy with health problems.  However, we do have a breed that despite every breeders best intention may at one point develop problems.  Being able to identify health problems early and provide proper treatment can save your mastino suffering and speed recovery.
