The health and welfare concerns related to hereditary defects in dogs have become a hot topic in the past year. A number of reviews are currently under way to investigate the breeding of dogs. The BVA recognises the importance of this long-standing issue, not only for dogs but for farm and domestic animal species too. It has been, and will continue to be, a major issue for its Ethics and Welfare Group (EWG).
