HEALTH AND MEDICAL
The Alaskan Klee Kai (AKK) is a generally healthy breed.
Responsible breeders screen breeding stock for health conditions including patellar luxation, autoimmune thyroiditis, heart murmur, eye disorders, and Factor VII deficiency.
Prospective AKK owners are encouraged to purchase from responsible/reputable breeders who are doing these evaluations, and confirm the health screening of the sire and dam.
Responsible breeders use the many tools available, along with the knowledge
of their dogs’ pedigrees, to selectively choose breeding dogs in order to
reduce the likelihood of temperament, structure and health concerns.
