We evaluate the following on all our adults and puppies: eyes, hearts, hips, and patellas. In addition to our thorough examinations, we genetically health test all our dogs for the following conditions:
Canine Multifocal Retinopathy 1 (CMR1)
Canine multifocal retinopathy 1 is an inherited eye disease characterized by areas of retinal detachment.
Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)
Degenerative myelopathy (DM) is an inherited neurologic disorder of dogs characterized by gradual muscle wasting and loss of coordination typically beginning in the hind limbs.
Hyperuricosuria is an inherited disorder characterized by elevated levels of uric acid in the urine that can lead to the formation of bladder/kidney stones.
Juvenile Hereditary Cataract (JHC)
Juvenile hereditary cataracts are an inherited form of cataracts that commonly cause blindness in dogs by clouding the lens of the eye and affecting both eyes symmetrically.
We also provide our dogs with
Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS).
Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to ENS, including improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate); stronger heart beats; stronger adrenal glands; more tolerance to stress; and greater resistance to disease.
