    But you know how certain people will jump on a quote like that.

    My guess is the breeder would look for a stud with good patellas and mate them.
    Not be a Breeder! I think chic emphasis is not to breed. However, since it says that luxating patellas is very low with well breed cavaliers, I would hope not an issue.

    Why? Bottom line creating additonal problems with mvd to reduce cm/sm however is not something I agree with. Forget it. I said it better before

    THE CAVALIER BREED AT A CROSS ROAD


    Anne, could you plese tell me how a Cavalier Breeder can Breed away from CM when around 90% of Cavaliers have the Condition ,there are Several or Many Genes involved ,it is a Complex Condition and there are No DNA Tests on the Market for a Complex Condition.

    It has been said in the Latest Veterinary Paper that Selective Cavalier Breeding will be Difficult to Elimate the Genetic Risk for SM because the Disease is Complex and the Prevalance of the Determinant Genes within the within the Cavalier Population is likely to be High

    Do you know how many Cavaliers MRI Scanned A also had CM.I think this is a Question that should be being asked.

    Bet, You are continually asking variations of the above question, of pet owners on this forum, including myself. How can we answer? we don't have expertise in this.
    How can any of us pet owners know how many MRI scanned A also have CM? - If I were you, I would ask the researchers this. They will have the information.
