Beagle: Personality & Health Issues
Droopy Lower Lids (Entropion)

Underdeveloped Optic Nerve (Hypoplasia of the optic nerve): A generally rare vision defect, where the optic nerve does not develop normally, which leads to blindness.  There is no treatment for this disorder. 
PPM (Persistant Pupillary Membrane)

PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy)
Cherry Eye
Deformed Eye Tunic (Ectasia Syndrome):
A thinning of the sclera or cornea, usually seen in Collies and related breeds.  The condition on its own is not serious, but it is usually associated with more serious eye diseases.
Clefts Of Lip And Palate
Intervertebral Disc Disease
Atopic (Allergic) Dermatitis
Nervous System:
Epilepsy: Defined as a state in which repeated seizures occur.  The interval between seizures may only be minutes, but it is usually hours or days and even several months.  Epileptic attacks may start to occur some weeks or (usually) months after a blow to the head, such as might occur in a car accident.  This is due to scar tissue contracting and producing a source of irritation within the brain.  Many epileptic attacks are classified as "idiopathic epilepsy", which means the condition is of unknown cause.  Treatment of epileptic dogs is frequently very rewarding, but you will need a close liaison with your vet to find the correct drugs and most suitable dose rate.
The Beagle:
A Beagle bred as a pack hound requires canine companionship and lots of exercise.  This breed requires special care only for their long ears, which must be cleaned regularly.  The coat needs a thorough brushing, once or twice a week, to rid it of dust and dead hair.
