Health Screening Tests

Hip Dysplasia

OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Certification:

We are able to radiograph your dog's hips for hip dysplasia at 24 months of age. We will forward these radiographs to a Board Certified Radiologist for OFA certification. Correct positioning of your dog is essential for proper radiographic evaluation, so a general anesthetic is required to make the procedure less stressful for him or her

Renal Dysplasia

Renal dysplasia is an uncommon but significant disease found in some Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos and Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers.

Renal dysplasia is a disease in which the kidneys fail to develop normally. Dogs usually become clinically ill before one year of age.

 If you are a breeder testing for this can significantly reduce your chances of breeding this inherited problem in your dogs.

Von Willebrand's Disease

We offer testing for this disease which, in some breeds, is a highly inheritable trait. Von Willebrand's disease is similar to hemophilia in humans and can result in life threatening bleeding. Often dogs that carry this disease in their genetic makeup go undetected until an emergency situation arises during a routine procedure such as a spay or neuter. In some cases, the disease may become apparent when a small superficial injury results in significant blood loss. Knowing your dog's condition ahead of time can make the difference between life and death.

Commonly affected breeds include Doberman PinscherLab_Work.jpgs, Scottish Terriers, Manchester Terriers, Shetland Sheepdogs, Poodles and Pembrooke Welsh Corgis. As many as 50% of Dobermans are affected with this disease.

Some animals show no signs of the disease but are carriers of the genetic problem. If these dogs are allowed to reproduce, they can pass the disease on to their offspring. If you are a breeder, consider using this test before breeding your dogs.
