So are your dogs tested? And if so, won´t you show them and their result on our homepage?
We already have the first dogs from Great Britain online. And it would be great to show more!
But as for the drugs – there are more dangers for an affected dog than drugs ending with “mectin”.
Just last week the Collie of a friend of mine died during an anaethesia. He was affected by the defect and the vets heeded this. At first all went well, but then he just died…
So we learned this with tears in our eyes:
Affected dogs have in general a high risk with nearly every drug. And to know about the defect won´t mean that your dog is safe…
Kind and sad regards,
