A bit about Japanese Chins

The Japanese Chin is known for its silky coat and distinctively short, pushed-in face. It has a rich history dating back to ancient Japan, where it was a favoured companion of Japanese nobility. Their origins are debated, but they may have been introduced as gifts from Chinese or Korean royalty. Japanese Chins are playful and affectionate, often displaying cat-like grace and independence.

Hereditary conditions

Because of their genetics, Japanese Chins can be at higher risk of developing certain health conditions. Luckily, our lifetime policies can help cover on-going or recurring treatment costs.


Peace of mind

Feel secure knowing your Japanese Chin can get veterinary care in the event of an accident or illness, without worrying about the impact of an unexpected bill.

Some Japanese Chin health problems

Brachycephalic airway syndrome

Due to their shortened muzzles and flat faces, Japanese Chins are prone to respiratory issues. This can cause difficulty breathing, sensitivity to heat, and snoring. Japanese Chins should avoid overly strenuous activities, as well as extremely hot environments.

Japanese Chins are generally healthy dogs, but like any breed, you might find they face certain health issues throughout their life. Dog insurance can help cover the cost of any unexpected illness that might arise – so they’ll always be able to get the care they need.

*Please note that these are general health concerns for Japanese Chins, and individual dogs may or may not experience these issues. Regular veterinary care, a balanced diet, proper exercise, and attention to breed-specific needs can help mitigate some of these health problems.
