    Statistics for EIC for Boykin Spaniels at University of Minnesota Diagnostic Lab do not support this statement that "most are testing now". Most owners/breeders based on the number of registered Boykins are NOT testing for it, despite the discovery of EIC in the Boykin breed three years ago. However, reputable breeders that participate in competition and field event venues are testing for EIC, but the puppy mill, high volume commercial kennels, and backyard or just plain "for profit" breeders far outweigh reputable breeders. But many of these breeders are also not even obtaining OFA certifications on hips either prior to producing litters much less testing for EIC.

    I think that most people that train Boykins for tests/trials understand EIC and test for it. Unfortunately, we still see enough people breeding for other purposes that don't care to test for it, or because they aren't breeding for compeetition, don't know about it yet.

    Crackrd, we are doing just fine out here. We now have a new game to play: PHEASANTS!
