All of our breeding dogs undergo Genetic Testing and OFA Hip & Elbow X-ray Certification.
This helps ensure that we are producing the most healthy offspring possible, that do not possess any genetic diseases that can be passed on.
We test our MAS for the common 'Collie' or 'Aussie' genetic defects which include:
(We have linked Paw Print Genetics to each of these, for your research)
Aliases: Choroidal hypoplasia, CEA, CH
Aliases: Canine degenerative myelopathy, DM
Aliases: Early onset cataracts, Juvenile cataracts, HC, HSF4, JC
Aliases: Urolithiasis, HUU
Aliases: Amnionless Deficiency, Cobalamin Deficiency, Imerslund-Grasbeck Syndrome, Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Aliases: Cobalamin deficiency, Cubilin deficiency, Imerslund-Grasbeck syndrome, I-GS
Aliases: Ivermectin sensitivity, MDR1 gene defect, Multidrug sensitivity, MDR1
Aliases: Canine multifocal retinopathy 1, CMR1
Aliases: PRA-PRCD, PRCD
Here is a sample Results form. This is Tinnys. As you can see, she is 'full panel clear' meaning she carries none of the genetic markers for any of these diseases.
