A recent scientific study indicates that pugs face health problems so serious that they “can no longer be considered a typical dog from a health point of view.”

Research by the Royal Veterinary College has revealed that the health of pugs is now significantly different and much worse than that of other dogs.

The study compared the health of 4,308 dogs with 21,835 dogs of other breeds.

UK pugs are more likely to have one or more disorders per year than other dogs.
