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 picture of the back) in “Animal clinic Sleeuwijk” by meaning of a French bulldog test (other X-rays were not yet taken at that time)

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

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)

Our dogs become NOT standard scanned (CT or MRI) A kind of tunnel through which they have to go through (under narcosis) Obviously there is an exception if there is something to see on the X-rays that we do not trust and affect health but if the X-rays are good that with a healthy French Bulldog unnecessary.

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 standard !!! A good breeder will never use a CT scan because the harmful effects in the dog and the offspring are not known.

We ourselves don’t use females and males for breeding, which have been through a CT scan, the risk is too great and we do not want to put offspring in the world who develop serious health problems.
There is so much promoted in the animal world what turns out to be harmful afterwards and then the consequences can’t be overseen.
But also the MRI scan is only done if there is some negative to see on the X-rays what the specialist doesn’t trust.

We also don’t believe in the PennHip method, a large part of dog lovers (and we) have bad experiences with it.
There are dogs that are HD-A (free) and have a bad PennHipp rash and vice versa do you have dogs that have a good PennHip rash but super bad hips and how can you use your dog for breeding?

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