I have take some health tests from my dogs. Eye examination is very common in Finland. Kromis go their first eye examination when they are 5-7 weeks old puppies before they move their new homes. Usually second time comes when they are about 2 years old. (That is time when you can see first signs of cataract. Thats why you can't use kromi (male of female) under 2 years for breeding in Finland.) And if you use our kromi to breeding, it's eye examination should be taken under year ago. (I am not sure how this all works in other countries.) This is only test what is compulsory (with kromis), but you can take other tests.
Because we have this mix-breeding project in Finlans where we try to have some new blood to kromis, I thougth it would be fun to take some other health tests too. More we know about our kromis, more we can do to help them survive as a breed. Here is a link for some words about DLA diversity of kromis. I am really glad that Finnish breeders do so much work behalf this great breed. And I want to make my share. So we went today to a doctor and take MyDogDNA - Pilot test from Kuje, Pila and Tapa.:)
I have also tested knees of all my dogs. There where all healthy 0/0. Because I train agility with dogs I wanted to see if they are fine inside too. Kuje, Pila and Tapa are all fine, they have A/A hips and elbows 0/0. Kromis usually don't have problem with bones. Our biggest problems are an epilepsy and autoimmune diseases, but there is no test for those. You just have to wait unto they are old enough and have not been sick. That's why we try to use as old dogs to breeding as we can.I am lucky to have 4 kromis without epilepsy, although I thought that Amanda did have epilepsy, but it turned out that she have a heart problem.
Here are some inside photos of Pila and Tapa.
And some outside photos too :D
