- We are often asked about breed related illnesses. Many genetic diseases are rare and complex, with some diseases requiring multiple ancestors to pass on particular genes to cause disease. Other diseases are simply related to a single ancestor in a dog’s breed makeup.
- Learning more about the history of breeds and any possible breed-related disorders can help you and your veterinarian develop a custom health and wellness plan for your dog.
- For more insight into genetic issues that may affect particular breeds, we suggest you visit the Canine Inherited Disorders Database, a joint initiative of the Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre at the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association.
