Our DNA test for Osteochondrodysplasia is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing. 

If you need more than two tests it is often more cost-effective to order the relevant breed package.


Osteochondrodysplasia (OCD) is a musculoskeletal disorder which begins with stunted growth at three weeks old. It causes splayed legs, club feet, enlarged joints, flattened ribcage, and underbite. Dogs may live a normal life span with care, but a tendency for arthritis and breathing difficulty.

An autosomal recessive condition caused by a mutation in the SLC13A1 gene.


This test is also included in the following breed packages:

  • Cavapoo
  • Cockapoo
  • Goldendoodle
  • Irish Doodle
  • Labradoodle
  • Poodle Miniature
  • Poodle Standard
  • Poodle Toy
  • Schnoodle
