DNA Testing


What health problems do you screen for?

In addition to the DNA testing listed below our adults are seen by an Orthopedic veterinarian, a canine Ophthalmologist and our regular veterinarian yearly to insure optimum health of all our our breeding adults. We spare no expense to insure the highest possible quality/provide you with the healthiest Cockapoo puppy possible.


Parents DNA is also tested Clear/Normal so insure your Cockapoo puppy can not inherit the following disease(s).  Click on the name of the disease to learn more.  As more DNA testing becomes available we will test our parent dogs for those disease(s). At present, unfortunately, there are no DNA tests for some of the more common hereditary diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, luxating patellas and hip dysplasia.
