Health Testing News - Patellas

When it comes to health testing, I like if possible and practical to have results for more than just those dogs we plan to breed from.  This helps us have a better picture of the gene pool and the dogs in it.  This is also one of the reasons I place great importance on keeping in touch with the owners of our puppies for the whole of the dogs life.  Pet dogs and their owners are an important part of what we do as breeders.

This week while BJ (Neuter Champion Espinay Arrens) was at his annual veterinary health exam, his owner Gary had his vet do a patella examination to check for any patella luxation, and fill out the examination form for submission to OFA.  I am happy to say that BJ's patellas are normal.

Many thanks to Gary for helping me out by getting the testing done.
