Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers are essentially a healthy breed and with proper care will live a long and active life.

All breeds, however, are susceptible to inherited disease and the wheaten is no exception. The pedigree histories associated with pure bred dog breeding enables the identification of several heritable health issues.

The Club currently has a Health subcommittee working on approaches to health issues best suited to the Australian situation and these will be published on the website following membership approval.

Other international groups also provide a good source information on health.
