    • Hello Francis, Sorry to hear about your loss. Ordinarily the Standard Schnauzer breed does not have many health issues and it would be impossible for me to know what caused your dog’s problems. I do think that your story may help people who read it in case they run into the same symptoms with their dog. Wishing you well and thanks for writing to us. Roberta.
