The Breed Health Coordinator of the Great Dane Breed Council is keen to promote health matters by way of this site. Whilst it is hoped to be able to provide regular updates but as we all know research often makes a slow progress so this may not always be possible.

The Kennel Club has an extensive amount of health information covering many breeds. A link can be found on our Health Links page.

At a recent meeting of the Breed Council it was agreed “That the Breed Council recommends to breeders that they microchip and DNA profile their puppies before they leave for their new homes. The DNA will then be available to identify problems in the future”.
