New to forum and Have puppy pics

Hi I live in Idaho. I just discovered this forum. It is very informative and I love it. I had 4 litters of pups born from June 17th to July 5th. Here is a picture of the whole bunch together all 16 of them. I just love the breed. Hope you all enjoy the pics. Jennifer

I'm thinking the pups are adorable,but that's alot of puppies to have all in a short period of time. What kind of health testing do you do?

My vet checks them all out very closely. There is no one in Idaho that does the health tests. Since my vet has never found any health problems or defects she doesn't recommend persuing any testing outside the state.

Welcome to the forum! I think there is a lot you might want to read about health testing though.

Might want to start here: http://havanese.org/hcaHealth.htm

Hi Jennifer,
Welcome to the forum. I am sure you realize that a vet can't tell you if a Havanese has bad hips without taking an xray. If xray's are taken, it is very simple to send them into OFA. Your vet can also sign the OFA application for passing Patella's. As for CERF, well, that can be done if a little seaching is done. BAER can be done by many vets that offer it, but sometimes that can be the hardest thing to get done if you live in a remote area. Doing health testing is really a way of trying to make sure the breeding Havanese are not going to pass something on to their off-spring. Nothing gives us a 100% guarantee that something won't go wrong, but it is a beginning point.

The HCA tries very hard to educate the buying public so they don't purchase puppies from parents that have not had any health testing done. This is just one way of breeding to improve the breed.

Here is a facility in Idaho that does CERF. You might contact them and see if they know of any other's in the state. Many dog shows offer CERF clinics too. I hope this helps you a little.

Thank you. I had heard there was someone in the area getting certified to do the cerf testing but I did not know she had finished. I will contact her asap.
