If you are interested in breeding to one of my
Champion studs the fee is $2000.
All stud services are guaranteed to have live puppies or a rebreed service will be free of charge.
Flow Rate 1.8
Encore For Neveah's Here Comes The Boom
GCh. Goss N Juneau Talkin Smack In Da Bayou
Echocardiogram - Normal
Flow Rate 1.74
Holter - 6-0-0 Normal
Any bitch that does not take may be allowed to rebreed to the same stud free at charge. All bitches must come to my home so that I can ensure proper breeding. Bitches must remain alone without any other males having access to them during heat cycle.
TESTING AND REPORTING GUIDELINES
ABC Health & Research Committee
Use and interpretation of tests should be in consultation with your veterinarian or veterinary specialist.
HypothyroidismThyroid Panel 24 months and Annually for Breeding
AS / SAS Auscultation & Doppler Echocardiogram 24 mos. Only once
Boxer Cardiomyopathy Holter Monitor done at 12 months and annually for Breeding
(ARVC Only Recommended) once only
Degenerative Myelopathy (Recommended) once only
Heart disease can be inherited or it can be caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic agents these are NOT inherited. The damage appears the same in some cases. A screening program can help determine the origin. All hearts should be ausculted at each veterinary visit. This is particularly important prior to any surgery, including ear cropping. If a murmur is detected the dog should be evaluated to determine the cause and significance of the murmur. Murmurs may be innocent ("flow" murmurs) or may be an indication of structural heart disease such as aortic stenosis, sub aortic stenosis, septal defects or defects of the mitral, tricuspid or pulmonic valves. Echo with Doppler measurements can accurately find and diagnose the origin of murmurs which cannot always be heard or reliably pinpointed by auscultation alone.
1. Maximum flow values have recently been reevaluated and raised to 2.4 IF there is no evidence of structural causes. The cardiologist should determine if the flow value for an individual Boxer is of concern. Current information is that AS/SAS may develop upon sexual maturity in dogs that were previously tested clear, thus the new recommendation for 24 mos. minimum age. Boxer Cardiomyopathy is a complex condition that is still under study.
2. Thyroid panel must include the following tests: TGAA (Thyroglobulin auto antibodies), Total T4AA, Free T4AA, cTSH. T3 and free T3.
