Akita Related Problems

The Akita is a large powerful dog which when fully grown can weigh up to 130 lbs. It has an independent, dignified, courageous and dominant character. As it states in the Breed Standard, the Akita can be dominant to other dogs.

All purebred dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. The Akita has some health problems that can be a concern, especially if you aren’t careful whom you buy from. They include Hip Dysplasia, Uveodermatologic Syndrome, Cruciate Ligament Injury, Entropion, Pemphigus and Sebaceous Adenitis.
