Our 2nd and 3rd imported french bulldogs RIP “Odessa de los Torantos” & RIP “Titan Soli Deo Gratia” with who we officially began our breeding program, are fully tested (including X-ray pictures) in “Animal clinic Sleeuwijk” by meaning of a French bulldog test and all our dogs have an official DNA certificate.

All our French Bulldogs are tested on:

  • Heart
  • Breathing (costo-abdominal)
  • Elongated soft palate
  • Thickened soft palte
  • Enlarged tonsoils
  • Tail vertebrae
  • Trachea size: millimeter
  • Larynx
  • Respiratory murmur
  • Nostrils
  • Skin and coat
  • Ear canal
  • Eyes: entriopion & ectropion
  • Third eyelid & Cherry-eye
  • Distichiasis
  • Cornea
  • Lacrmation
  • Luxating Patella (joints)
  • Subluxatie (hip joint)
  • Tail: pintail
  • Construction and whirling column
  • Spondylosis
  • Thoracic vertebrae
  • Lumbar vertebrae
  • Spine-pelvis transition
  • Narrow trachea(trachea hypoplasin)

They are in a  possession of a of MyDogDNA profile and are fully tested with 16 months old (including X-rays of her back, knees, elbows, hips and larynx)

They are also tested for 193 additional disease mutations found in other breeds.

Our dogs don’t go through a scan (CT or MRI). A kind of tunnel where they have to pass under anesthesia and tied.

Of course there is an exception if there is something to see on the X-rays that we don’t trust, but if the X-rays are good, it is unnecessary for a healthy French Bulldog.

A CT scan provides “200 times more radiation” than an X-ray photo so you know how dangerous it is and that you should never do it as standard !!! A good breeder will never use a CT scan because the long-term adverse effects are not known.

An MRI scan works against this on the basis of a strong magnetic field and radio waves and is the safest, but due to the terrible noise of the equipment, the hearing can be affected, so the ears have to be well protected but furthermore an MRI scan is 100% safe.

We also don’t believe in the pennhip method, a big part of dog people (and we) have bad experiences with that (more information will follow)
