Health demands for the Eurasier
It is not always easy to understand which health demands are applicable to the Eurasier. We can only emphasize that we strive towards a healthy breed, and we believe this can only be achieved by checking for as many illnesses as possible, and by not using sick dogs for breeding. Below we have gathered a summary with the current demands, and which standard we uphold ourselves. If you have any questions concerning this, please contact us.
The minimum demands from DKK and the demands for a "plus-pedigree" can be seen here.
It is possible to read about each illness and what letters and numbers mean under the menu "Health".
