Weimaraners are generally a healthy breed, but like all breeds they may have some health issues, like hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, and bloat. A small percentage of Weim puppies have a genetic predisposition to overreacting to vaccines. Some Weims are known to have inherited blood diseases or eye diseases that usually have a very minor impact on their life.
One of the easiest breeds to groom because of their short silvery coat. Dirt seems to fall right off of them. Brush weekly with a bristle brush and shine your pup’s coat with a chamois cloth. As with all breeds with long ears, keep your Weimaraner’s ears clean and dry.
