    Many breeds of companion animal have inherited disorders that may impair quality of life (QoL) to the extent that it is unkind to keep them alive. If we struggle to discern when this point is reached, why do we breed compromised, short-lived animals in the first place? If we struggle to judge...

  10. Optimisation of breeding strategies to reduce the prevalence of inherited disease in pedigree dogs

    Contributor(s):: Lewis, T. W., Woolliams, J. A., Blott, S. C.

    One option for improving the welfare of purebred dog breeds is to implement health breeding programmes, which allow selection to be directed against known diseases while controlling the rate of inbreeding to a minimal level in order to maintain the long-term health of the breed. The aim of this...

  11. Welfare epidemiology as a tool to assess the welfare impact of inherited defects on the pedigree dog population
