Health Testing: About

Thankfully, the Australian Labradoodle is known as a generally healthy breed. This is largely due to the history of how the Australian Labradoodle has been bred. To continue to ensure good health and longevity in this breed, Sweet Tea is dedicated to through health testing.
Each one of our mom and dad Australian Labradoodles are tested in these areas:

1) OFA Hips, Elbows, and Patellas. Hips and Elbows are tested twice. Once at approximately 4 weeks and again at approximately 2 years of age.
2) OFA Cardic Testing
3) OFA Eye Testing every 18 months
4) Genetic Testing is conducted through Paw Prints Genetics and includes: prcdPRA: (Progressitve rod-cone degeneration progressive  retinal atrophy) which results in loss of vision, vWD: (Von Willebrand disease) a blood clotting disorderEIC: (Exercise-induced collapse) strenuous activity can possibly result in weakness or collapse of dog.DM: (Degenerative myelopathy) a progressive disease of the spinal cord. There are more genetic diseases which we screen for. Go to Paw Prints Genetics for more information.

We are proud to have achieved the Platinum Paw which is highest level of health testing status within the ALAA and have worked hard to ensure our mom and dad dogs pass on the healthiest genes to our puppies.
