Inherited Cardiovascular and Nervous Disorders in Mixed Breed Dogs

It can be extremely difficult to tell if a mixed breed dog has a genetic tendency to develop a cardiovascular or nervous disorder. This is because most owners don’t know the exact breed makeup of their mixed breed, and genetic disorders are well linked to specific breeds.

Today, mixed breed Dog DNA tests can help erase that inequality. Mixed breed dog DNA tests can determine a mixed breed dog has a purebred parent or grandparent. Once you know the purebred makeup of your dog, your vet can determine if your dog is at risk of inheritied genetic disorders.
