The Cane Corso is a strong and sturdy dog, which doesn’t have health problems.
However, here’s what has to be looked after because it could be subject to the following infections:
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Elbow dysplasia
  • Osteo-articular pathologies during growth (crossed ligaments))
  • Eyes-related problem (entropion, harder gland)
The Cane Corso’s upkeeping is reduced to a strict minimum: a quick brush from time to times, a hair inspection everytime you walk you dog, and a regular ear and eye cleaning would be enough.
The Cane Corso must be used to being brushed and taken care of his eyes and ears at a very young age in order for your dog to be easy to be manipulated in case of an accident or for usual vet care.
The owner’s job is important for the puppy to adapt to his adult life: long walks on a regular basis are mandatory for this sporty dog for it to have a balanced growth and to be well with the family. The Cane Corso’s life expectancy is around 12 years. It’s energetic and sporty nature allows it to stay active for most of its life.
