Recommended tests for a
sheltie being considered as a breeding prospect:
- a crippling, degenerative, hereditary disorder resulting in
disintegration of the hip joint in dogs. By age two, all adult dogs need to
have hips x-
rayed for hip dysplasia. Most people use OFA
(Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) which
has a web site at
www.offa.org. Some people do prelim x-rays at 6 months. Most vets can
do these. Approximate cost: (depending on location) $250 to
$500 for x-rays, office visit
and registration with OFA.
Test for vonWillebrandís
- a hereditary bleeding disorder found in many dogs
purebred or mixed. Von Willebrandís Disease or vWD is a DNA test. If you are
breeding dogs genetically clear of vWD, then you don't have to
do the puppies. This can
be done at any time in a dog's life.

problems, can also be an issue. There are some good
indicators if your dog has a problem: loss of hair, excessive weight
that you can not get to come off. Thyroid is an area many sheltie
breeders opinions very on. Some test for this but some don't.
Because if the dog has a problem they will show it outwardly as a stated
above. Loss of hair, excessive weight, and inability to produce.
- PRA or progressive retinal atrophy, collie eye syndrome, and
sheltie eye syndrome, can result in blindness. Eye exams must be done by a
certified veterinary ophthalmologist. The results
if sent in to CERF (Canine Eye Registry
Foundation) will appear on OFA web site and on AKC papers for
one year. Early tests are
for collie eye or CEA. Later tests are
for various forms of PRA or progressive retinal
sheltie eye syndrome. Approximate cost $250.
