When bringing a Cane Corso puppy to your home, remember that your first concern is his health. And breeders should choose among those who are guided by the same scale of values.
Hip dysplasia is a real scourge of the breed, a pathology that in mild cases is fraught with lameness. But, unfortunately, complex cases are much more common in which an operation is necessary.
Alas, in the most difficult cases, Cane Corso does not help even this, and the dog has to be euthanized. The causes of the disease can be both genetic factors and content: overfeeding, excessive physical exertion at a young age.
When choosing a Cane Corso puppy, take an interest in the health of the parents (both must have a certificate of lack of dysplasia). And when the pet turns one year old, you can take an X-ray and make an appointment with a certified specialist. This will reveal the disease in the bud and make life easier for the dog.
