Click below to find out about inherited disorders in these breeds. The most popular breeds tend to have the most disorders listed because there is a larger number of dogs affected, and therefore more opportunity to recognize a breed predisposition to a particular disorder. As well, indiscriminate breeding is more likely to occur in these breeds, leading to a higher incidence of inherited disorders. In less common or newer breeds, there may be no disorders listed or the list of disorders may be quite short, because it can take some time before enough dogs are affected to recognize an inherited disorder. This is not a comprehensive list of every suspect inherited disorder that has ever been reported in each breed, but instead is an attempt to provide a list of inherited disorders for each breed, on which there is consensus among veterinarians and other experts that these are significant in that breed.
