We have begun genetic testing on our dogs. Our male dogs tests are clear and they are not carriers of any diseases. Both parents must be carriers of a disease for it to reflect onto their offspring.
We are in the process of doing testing on all of our females. If they tested as a carrier to something it would not carry through to their offspring since our males are clear of all diseases that can be checked for.
Knees and patellas doesn’t have a genetic test as of yet but the scientists are working to make one possible soon. X-rays do not always show signs of hip and knee issues that might arise in the offspring of our dogs. There is no way of knowing about hips and patellas. We do try to produce the healthiest offspring we can and hybrids are usually healthier than the purebreds, especially in poodles.
If you would like to see any of our dogs reports, please ask. I think you can lookup the information on Paw Print Genetics. I also have a printout of each dogs dna test.
