Labradoodle Health Problems
The one thing which all the different types have in common is the need for PARENTAL HEALTH SCREENING. These dogs are prone to hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia and patella luxation (kneecaps slipping). Responsible breeders' pups benefit from over 35 DNA screening test for various hereditary health problems.
Even with these tests, the breeder can not guarantee health. Unfortunately, there is a multitude of problems which the current science has no screening test.
Structural testing by x-ray reduces risk whilst DNA testing of parents eliminates the possibility of producing an Affected puppy. This elimination is only valid if both parents are Clear. Alternatively, if one parent is Clear and the other is a Carrier or Affected.
We accept the scientific tests for dog genetics is complicated. However, you should have a basic understanding of the diseases and the DNA tests available.
This knowledge will help you evaluate which breeder to choose. This will affect how much your labradoodle costs. How much to pay for a Labradoodle puppy is one of our most frequent questions asked.
