The Samoyeds are healthy and resistant dogs, as long as they get enough exercise and do not get overweight. Like some other purebreed dogs, they can have a risk of diabetes, if their owners don´t offer them proper care and exercise.

The Samoyed´s coat is a great isolator, that protects them from cold, heat and insects like mosquitos and flies.

Basic health care includes yearly vaccination, regular deworming and treating against fleas and thicks. They do not have a lot of genetic problems. The most common one that occasionally occures is hip dysplasia.

The Samoyeds that are used for breeding must have their hips x-rayed, recommended is also that they have their eyes checked by a specialist ophthalmologist.

The life expectancy is between 12 and 15 years.
