Additional Tests

RubyPeridot Dachshunds (ANKC) DOGS AUSTRALIA conducts 5 additional tests available for the Dachshund (Miniature).

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

This is a type of hypothyroidism which can occur in any breed and can be caused by many different things. It is more common in some breeds compared to others, so in these breeds it is recommended that breeding dogs have a blood test to show they have normal thyroid levels at the time of breeding.

dna iconGenetic Test

Mucopolysaccharidosis is a genetic lysosomal storage disease that can cause various problems including stunted growth and bone deformities. There are a few different variants of this disease that have been identified in different breeds. For many breeds there are DNA tests available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying the condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a neurodegenerative disorder found in many breeds of dog. 7 varieties have been identified so far, affecting different breeds. There are DNA tests for each type, to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), also known as ‘brittle bone disease’, is an inherited disease in both humans and animals, causing bone fragility and fracturing. As it is a genetic disease, breeding parents can be tested to ensure it is not passed onto their puppies.

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

Many breeds with screw-tails or long backs are prone to congenital spinal abnormalities such as hemivertebrae or disc calcification. These can cause spinal kinks and instability resulting in a high rate of slipped discs and spinal injury. Breeders can conduct xrays to identify if a breeding dog has a high risk of spinal instability. These dogs should not be bred. Some breeders will also xray puppies at 6-8 weeks old to confirm the status of their spine for new owners.

Why we got involved in breeding

We wanted a wonderful pet for ourselves after our first mini long, we became hooked and soon we added a second and then a third one to our family.
