Available Tests From Related Breeds

The breeds we know today have been selectively bred for from a few common ancestors. Breeds that were derived from common ancestors constitute a breed group. Because a breed group is genetically related, mutations and diseases in ancestors or within a breed put all breeds within that group at risk for the same inherited disorders. Therefore, we have provided you the diseases that occur in common ancestors and related breeds so that you can decide whether you wish to also exclude these diseases in your dog.
