English Springer Spaniel Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 7/20/2005
I notice that you have a comprehensive list of diseases/ailments that can affect the ESS. You do mention Storage Diseases, but you do not list FUCOSIDOSIS separately for which there is a DNA test available. Do you have a DNA test for Fucosidosis in the USA? If so, is it used? and if not, why not?

11/27/05 They have testing .But' DNA does not rule Fucosidoisis out of the pedigree as most DNA are of research in many different faults . Careful consideration of lines and breeding through the years will help breeders know thier own lines and what it has to give. Have you seen this allot in your area ? Deborah
