Causes of death in five common dog breeds
boxer_small_bayer.jpg Picture: © Bayer Animal Health
In this study, the final necropsy diagnoses of 1206 dogs in the years 1985-1999 were compared. The dogs belonged to the breeds Golden and Labrador Retriever, Boxer, Rottweiler and German Shepherd. One of the results of this interesting evaluation: Golden Retrievers have the same index of suspicion for neoplasia as Boxers, but Boxers die earlier...

A significantly larger proportion of boxers and golden retrievers died of neoplastic disease than the other three breeds.

The ages at death were not significantly different among golden retrievers, German shepherd dogs, and Labrador retrievers.

However, rottweilers and boxers died at a younger age from both neoplastic and nonneoplastic diseases.

Although boxers were already known to be at a higher risk for neoplasia, a similar index of suspicion for neoplasia should now be used for golden retrievers.
