Ok I have a question for all the breeders. When I was researching hypothyroidism because Callie was just put on medicine for it, one article said that it is something that can be passed down from there parents. Is that true? Is hypothyroidism something yall test for before breeding?

Callie Mae, you will forever be in my heart!

I'm pretty sure it is hereditary & can be tested for it, so yes breeders should test their breeding stock for hypothyroidism. My brother purchased his cocker spaniel puppies from a byb'er & one of 'em has it & needs to be on medication for life. He's doing well tho.
