People who have raised Mexican hairless dogs may wonder: Why are hairless dogs so susceptible to illness? Here's the answer.
Easy to get sick
Mexican hairless dogs, like many other dogs, are prone to hip dysplasia and eye problems. Potential eye problems include progressive retinal atrophy, glaucoma, and primary lens dislocation. It is suggested to choose foods with low allergenicity to help hairless dogs reduce skin inflammation.
Mexican hairless dogs have no hair, so it's easy to tell if they're gaining weight. We can see if there is a depression in the waist between the buttocks and the ribs of a hairless dog. If your partner can't see the hairless waistline, it's time to cut back on the hairless dog. You can also touch and feel the ribs of the dog. It should be easy to find the ribs and hip bones. The ribs should not have obvious protrusion, otherwise it is malnutrition.
