Sire and Dam Information

Information that a dog has not been diagnosed with a problem is as significant as information about a diagnosed health condition so please fully complete the questionnaire below. If you have other information about your dog’s health, please add that information to the Section “Other Information” along with the age of the dog at diagnosis or other specifics. This would include a condition that was not diagnosed through testing, etc. but which responded to treatment (for example, ear infections or skin condition which improved or resolved with a change in diet) or when a veterinarian believes a condition existed but which can only be proven with specialized testing or a necropsy. Finally, if the dog has been tested for genetic disorders, screened for orthopedic issues or has a DNA profile on record, please provide a copy of the results with your response.
