What are the major health issues of the greater swiss mountain dog? I am considering getting a female, as a pet and not for breeding purposes. I have owned old english sheepdogs and golden retrievers in the past, so am used to good sized dogs..I have heard that cancer is a big concern with this breed, as well as the bernese mountain dogs..is this true?

Joint problems in the hips and elbows, bloat where the stomach twists and foot can't get in or out-this could be fatal so you have to make sure the dog doesn't eat then run and the dog has to eat slow or small amounts at a time. You can check greater swiss mountain dog breeder's websites for more info
