All our dogs which we used to breed were X-rayed on back, elbows and hips for several generations.
Even our dogs were all examined at the following hereditary disorders:
1) Anhidrotische ectodermal dysplasia (AED), (absence of sweat glands)
2) Degenerative myelopathy (DM), (spinal cord disorder)
3) Mucopolysaccharidosis VII (MPS VII), (damage to cells and tissues)
4) Renal cystadenocarnicoma and nodular dermatofibrosis (RCND), (kidney cancer)
In this way our kennel "De Heide-Wachter" proves that health is paramount when we selected our dogs that we used to breed.
