GENETIC TESTING

DNA tests allow owners and breeders to check a dog’s genetic status for known simple inherited disorders. These conditions are caused by a mutation at just one gene. As a result, the inheritance of these diseases is predictable, and producing puppies affected by the disease can be avoided provided that the test results for both parents are known. Often a specific mutation known to cause a simple, single gene disorder may be known to occur in individual breeds, or related breeds, although the percentage of dogs affected by the disease is usually, but not always, very low. These diseases are most commonly tested for in purebred dogs by responsible breeders, but can also occur in cross breeds and mixed breeds.

At Bayside Cavoodles our studs are cleared for over 100 genetic diseases and traits that are known to affect a dog's quality of life. This means any offspring are cleared by parentage.
