Whether you plan to breed your dog or not, their medical information should still be vital to you. Each of these diseases is debilitating. The onset of some only occurs well after maturity. A few can be surgically repaired, others have no remedy. The test results are a valuable tool upon which breeders are expected to use when evaluating future dam/sire pairings, in order to continually better the health of future generations, but not all breeders are as thorough as others.
