Welcome to our esteemed dog breeding program! We take pride in maintaining the highest standards of health and genetic screening to ensure the well-being of our beloved canines. We would like to provide you with a comprehensive overview of our stud, including information on health testing results.
Embark Testing and Clearances:
Our stud has undergone rigorous health testing through Embark, a leading canine genetic testing company. We have conducted a total of 256 tests, and we are pleased to inform you that the results have come back clear for the vast majority of conditions. This comprehensive screening process ensures that we breed from healthy and genetically sound dogs.
Chondrodystrophy and Intervertebral Disc Disease (CDDY/IVDD):
During the testing, our stud was identified as carrying a gene associated with Chondrodystrophy and Intervertebral Disc Disease, specifically Type I IVDD (FGF4 retrogene – CFA12). It is important to note that this condition has been found in Small Poodles.
While our stud carries this gene, we believe in maintaining complete transparency and prioritizing the welfare of our breeding dogs and their offspring. As responsible breeders, we take proactive measures to minimize the risk and impact of this condition. By carefully selecting suitable mates and conducting additional health screenings, we aim to produce litters with reduced or no risk of Chondrodystrophy and Intervertebral Disc Disease.
To ensure the well-being of our stud and their future litters, we implement a stringent health management program. This program includes regular veterinary check-ups, exercise routines tailored to their needs, and a nutritionally balanced diet. We also provide a comfortable and enriched living environment to promote their physical and mental health.
We are committed to breeding healthy, well-tempered, and genetically sound puppies. By carefully monitoring our stud’s health and implementing appropriate breeding practices, we aim to produce offspring with reduced risk of Chondrodystrophy and Intervertebral Disc Disease. Our priority is to contribute positively to the breed while maintaining the highest ethical standards.
We appreciate your interest in our breeding stud and hope this summary has provided you with valuable information. Our commitment to transparency, responsible breeding, and the overall health and well-being of our dogs remains unwavering. Please feel free to contact us for further details or to discuss any concerns you may have.
