The Cesky Terrier is a healthy breed, but as with all living creatures, very occasionally problems can occur.

As the Cesky Terrier was developed from a combination of Scottish and Sealyham Terriers, it is always possible that conditions found in those two breeds could be seen also in the Cesky Terrier.

It must be stressed that these conditions are not widespread. The Cesky Terrier is, in general, a very healthy breed, and many live a long life, with very infrequent visits to the veterinary surgery.
