We've added so many tests in the past few years, that I'm seeing there is a point that it's hard to convince people to add yet another $200 health test to their lines . . .
The previous quote is from the “Heart Disease in the Labrador Retriever" thread and it brings up a good point. If tests continue to be added at the current rate, how many clearances will there be in another 10 or 15 years? At what point will there be more than are justifiable? With so many tests will there be only a few dogs that are able to pass them all? Will breeders and puppy buyers be able to keep things in perspective or will we eliminate a large portion of the gene-pool in an attempt to breed "perfectly healthy" dogs? Where do you think this will lead us and what is the sensible way to deal with this impending situation?
