HGE....What every toy or small purebred dog owner should know!
HGE (Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis) is a critical and potentially fatal disease common in toy and small dog breeds between 2-4 years old. The dog breeds most likely affected by HGE are, Dachshunds, Yorkshire terriers, miniature Schnauzers, miniature poodles, just to name a few. Clinical studies have determined HGE affects only the purebred breeds that are healthy with no known history of illness. HGE has a sudden and fierce onset of bloody vomiting and bloody diarrhea, listlessness and dehydration. HGE is life-threatening if not caught early and treated aggressively.
