Beagle Pain Syndrome was given its name when it was first seen in a colony of research Beagles in the 1980s. Since then, it has been carefully studied and renamed steroid responsive meningitis-arteritis (SRM or SRMA.) It occurs in several breeds but appears most commonly in only a few, including the Beagle.

Anterior Uveitis can be a serious problem when it comes to Beagles. There are several factors that have been linked to the cause of this disease. These are:
•Infections that have been caused by pathogenic microorganisms. These include bacteria, viruses and fungi. A Beagle that spends a lot of time outdoors is at a higher risk of being exposed to these pathogens.
•Immune-mediated conditions that are breed specific
•Eye trauma or injury
•When protein escapes from the eye lens into the eye fluid. This is often linked to cataracts.

Ossifying Type: Tumors are that are pedunculated non-ulcerative.
In Atrial Septal Defects (ASD), the blood tends to flow from the right atrium to the left atrium due to the relatively high pressure exerted by the blood returning to the heart from the body circulation. This phenomenon prevents blood in the heart from being pushed into the lungs leading to poor oxygenation of blood cells and consequently a decrease in the circulating oxygen in the body.
