It is relatively simple and inexpensive to test breeding stock for these issues.
However~You cannot test for the disease I am referring to, therefore, it is a gamble!

Hopefully it will be possible at some point. For now, let's hope the breeders do the right thing and neuter the parents and all the puppies.

No it's not cheap to check, but any breeders who are worth anything will do ALL testing that COULD be within their breed.

My point exactly, bubbatd.

Mach1girl, even tho the appropriate health testing was not done on your bitch prior to breeding, you can and SHOULD still do it as soon as possible, and you should strongly encourage the stud dog owner to do so as well.

It would be very important information for your puppy owners to have about the health status of the parents of their puppy.
