At this time the decision to breed from individual dogs remains with the owner and the knowledge obtained from participating in the Health Scheme taking into consideration the individual test results.
However vets recommend that –
Dogs that show any sign of suffering from BOAS should not be bred from.
Dogs that have received treatment for BOAS and can now breathe should not be bred from.
BOAS is an inherited condition and it may be passed on to any puppies that you breed.This means you may be responsible for producing pets that are likely to need significant costly veterinary treatment during their lifetime.
Dogs that have had spine( back or neck) problems should not be bred from.
