We've had many Dalmatians with none of their characteristic health problems like deafness, rash, etc. I guess we've been lucky.Our two Dals we had earlier died young probably due to their diets which consisted of beef & bones mostly.But now we give our Dals kibble plus rice and chicken and vegetables.Our two Dals(Mother & Daughter) are growing well.
