Breed Specific Health Testing

We encourage all breeders to fulfill the breed specific health testing before starting reproductive services, and without the appropriate health testing we may not be able to breed your dog. For more information on what health testing may be required for your breed, click on your breed's designated American Kennel Club group below. If you are unsure of your dog's designated group you can find general information through the AKC's webiste here. Medical testing can be completed through Embark and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. If you have specific questions about health testing that AVRS advises for your specific breed, please feel free to contact us for an appointment.
