Many sites are out there regarding health issues relavant to the Akita and other breeds as well.  I have listed a few here for your convenience:

The Dog Emergency First Aid link provides tons of information on Canine first aid, T- Touch, Hypothyroidism just to name a few - surf through its many different links - I am sure you will find something of interest to you there.

The Canine Eye Cerf site hosts losts of information as well as explaining the importance of breed stock being "Cerf'd" clear of eye deformities and disease.  You can also check Cerf#'s here.

OFA - Orthopedic Foundation for Animals site will explain the importance of breed stock being x-rayed and cleared for hip and/or elbow displatia or knee deformities.

Canine Bloat  = Gastric Dilation-Volvulous = very serious- life threatening concern for large breed dogs - this "Bloat" site has excellent emergency advice for dealing with bloat - however I do not advise handling such a serious situation as bloat with this information alone - seek immediate veterinary support and treatment in any bloat case. Downloadable Bloat First Aid Book - from Great Dane Site - Siefried Zahn D.V.M.

ACA Health Resource Link is a direct link to the ACA web page on health issues regarding Sebaceous Adenitis (SA), Pemphigus, PRA, VKH, Bloat and many others.

Senior Dog Health Resource Page is full of interesting sites and information on all breeds of  aging dogs.  Take a trip though its' many different links and sites.

Before you assume it's PARVO - check out the links to the left regarding "SHOW CRUD - Bacterial Overgrowth" .  The first is a link with information based on original discoveries and my own experience the second is also based on original discovery and Sam Anderson's personal experience as published in national Basenji magazines - methods tried and true life savers..
