is a website dedicated to the health and wellness of a most beloved breed; the Irish Setter.  It was created strictly as reference material and to enhance the reader's knowledge of this breed.  It should NOT replace sound veterinary advice or care.

Irish Setters are typically healthy dogs with few overall health problems. The quick buttons to the left are the most common disorders associated with the Irish Setter.
Of these, many can be reduced or eliminated by selective breeding and genetic testing.  Other disorders listed on this site are not to be considered commonplace specifically to the Irish Setter.  All purbred dog breeds, to include mixed breeds, share in the likelihood of being affected by these disorders.
