Hiding Genetic Disease

If breeders withhold information about the genetic disease in their breed or within their line, then we face an insurmountable barrier in any attempt to control genetic disease. Open discussion about problems your dogs have produced allows other breeders to make more informed choices. Secrecy and denial only perpetuate the problem. Genetic testing may help; however, if the disease does not appear until late in the dog’s life, then only by alerting your puppy owners "downstream" from the affected dog can you hope to prevent further misery for both the dogs and owners.
