All canines have the potential for genetic or congenital disease. Unfortunately, no guarantee will mean your dog won’t end up with problems. Currently more than 50% Golden Retrievers are carriers or affected of the genetic mutation responsible of Ichthyosis (results in a profusion of mild dandruffs visible on the back and belly), at lease 25% of the breed is dysplastic, 15% of the breed has juvenile cataracts (a relatively harmless eye disease), 15% of the breed has heart murmurs (not necessarily indicative of SAS), 15% of all dogs have allergies and Golden’s are no exception. One out of every five golden retrievers will get hemangiosarcoma, and less than 2% of the breed have an increase risk of being born with unilateral or bilateral ectopic ureters, (also called as ectopic ureter or “wet puppies”) as the result of uncontrollable “leaking” of urine from a female dog. Unfortunately without know what the genetic cause of the condition is, it is impossible to be certain of the pattern of inheritance. No only, but the golden retriever is now considered as the number one cancer breed.
Due to the nature of these particular diseases it is the job of the breeder, through selective breeding, adapt matings, and limit the spread and to try to minimize the possibility of these conditions. The breeders screens the background of all prospective sires and dames in the breeding program to reduce the odds of whelping a genetically inferior or defective dog. To eliminate such diseases within our control, and to raise the healthiest dogs possible which starts from the mother’s womb, the ideal place for the dog to pick up elements, as we use only non-toxic, organic, plant-base, all natural products. We feed our dogs only organic and high quality grain-free food. At times, no matter what the breeder does to prevent such occurrences, as we strive to ensure the healthiest dogs and try everything possible to avoid such, at time things happen beyond our control, as mother nature will have the last impact. Due to the nature of being naturally grown there are risks of minor defects. This is why we have a wellness warranty and healthy guarantee. All dogs will be examined by licensed veterinarian and receive a state health certificate before they are delivered to the buyer.
Even though the breeders try to avoid such occurrence, the buyer fully understand and accept the possibility of the uncontrollable insistence’s can happen and will not castigate or penalize the breeders due to mother nature due to mother nature driving force behind the evolutionary process and taking control of stabilizing life.
This is why a licensed veterinarian examines all dogs, receive a state health certificate before they are delivered to the buyer and have the option to take advantage of our wellness and health guarantee.
