Dead at Age Three

Dead at age three is not that unusual for Great Danes.
"Kevin died this week following an unplanned surgery after falling ill.”
Right. It wasn’t a traffic accident.

The UK Kennel Club’s health survey puts median age at death for Great Danes in the UK at 6 years and 6 months, with over 30 percent dying of inheritable heart issues, 15 percent from bloat (gastric torsion), and 5 percent being put down for temperament.
