    Non "require" dewclaws, some offer it though as well as blood and/or cheek swabs. Pups must be weaned and separated from each other for a limited time before swabs can be used to keep their busy mouths from collecting DNA from litter mates.

    Question:
    If both the Sire and the Dam are EIC clear does that mean all the pups will be EIC clear?
    Thanks

    Yes. If you are 100% sure that said sire is the one and only!

    no your vet doesnt have to do it you cando it yourself order the 50 some dollar kit and after your dog has been away from other dogs for a couple hours lift up the jowles of its mouth and place the swab up on his gums. let go of his lip and press lightly on the cheek where the swab is and turn the swab while pressing on it then take it out and repeat on other side then send in according to instructions
