I love Dr. Jeff Vidts website. So much good information!
Here is a section he has on breed problems. Very informative!
Shar-Pei Breed Problems
There is no perfect dog breed... every breed has its problems and imperfections. The easiest way to discuss the problems seen in our breed is to list them according to the body system involved. Please remember that these problems are seen in a vary small number of dogs... not every Shar-Pei will be affected:
stenotic (pinched) nostrils
elongated soft palate
pneumonia -- primarily in puppies
entropion -- rolling in of the eyelids
"cherry eye" -- prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid
stenotic (narrow) ear canals
bacterial ear infections
yeast over growth
bite problems -- most commonly, an overbite
inflammatory bowel disease
lip fold pyoderma
skin fold pyoderma
allergic skin disease -- alleric inhalant dermatitis, food allergy, insect allergy, contact allergy, etc.
luxating patellas -- "loose" kneecaps
anterior cruciate ligament rupture
immune - mediated kidney disease
mast cell tumor
Familial Shar-Pei Fever (FSF)
abscesses -- bite wounds, other
Primary Multiple Immunodeficiency Syndrome of Shar-Pei
So out of this list Chloe has had/has:
entropion -- rolling in of the eyelids She has had her eyes tacked, and then entropion surgery which seems to have helped
allergic skin disease She has to eat grain free food
Familial Shar-Pei Fever (FSF) This has been the worse.
Ear infections I clean her ears with a burrows mixture from the vet to prevent infections (and also cleared up an infection)
Mysterious skin tag/wart She has had this come back a couple times, hopefully this time they will leave forever
