Beagle Health




Beagles are generally a healthy breed.   We are very fortunate to have Mrs Sam Goldberg, BVSc MRCVS, as KC Health Coordinator for the UK Beagle Clubs.   Sam breeds and exhibits her own beagles under the Molesend and Sabinhay prefixes.


Sam, together with Lynn Bailey, Salenko Beagles, have developed the Beagle Health website and database.   The site is for the interest of all Beagle owners, whether they be pets, show, working Beagles or Beagles you wish to breed from.   It covers general health information and genetics.


Sam is only too happy to help anyone with any queries and may be contacted at:



Lynn maintains the Beagle Health website and database and may be contacted at:
