Genetic Testing Dogs

We have recently decided to start breeding Labradors. As you all know, we have four Labradors and genetic testing is important when you breed. You want to produce the best of the best when breeding puppies. You do not want to bring in puppies that will have life long health problems. Genetic testing dogs will help eliminate any future issues for puppies. When selling puppies, you want to insure your potential buyers that you have taken the steps to provide them with healthy puppies .

Even with genetic testing you can always have some sort of issues. Lets take Berkeley for an example, he had to have his salivary gland removed. This is not something that we would have known by a genetics test. Berkeley also has Hemorrohagic Gastroenteritis. We have extensive medical bills with Berkeley.  We have been debating on getting pet insurance , if you have someone to recommend please let me know in the comments below.

Your dog deserves the best. Making informed decisions about your dog’s health is vital to its happy life now and in the future.

Knowing your breed is only a small part of the story. Knowing your dog’s genetic health risk will allow you to:Care for those diseases that are treatable. Prepare for a pet emergency Predict future medical problems, saving costly veterinarian diagnostic workups What is Canine HealthCheck? The Canine HealthCheck is a screen of more than 150 genes that cause diseases or traits in dogs. It is easily collected in the comfort of your home – no veterinarian required!
