ALTHOUGH THE HAVANESE ARE GENERALLY A HEALTHY BREED
THEY DO HAVE SOME BREED SPECIFIC HEALTH ISSUES ALONG
WITH OTHER NON BREED SPECIFIC ISSUES.  THIS PAGE IS SET UP
TO EDUCATE YOU "THE NEW OWNER" ON THESE HEALTH RELATED
ISSUES AND HOW TO CHECK AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE
GETTING THE HEALTHIEST PUPPY POSSIBLE.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT HEALTH TESTING IS NEVER A
GUARANTEE THAT YOUR PUPPY WILL NEVER BECOME ILL OR
DEVELOP A HEALTH ISSUE.   WHAT HEALTH TESTING WILL DO IS
INCREASE YOUR ODDS ON GETTING THE HEALTHIEST PUPPY
POSSIBLE.

VERY LITTLE HEALTH TESTING CAN BE DONE ON A PUPPY SINCE IT
IS YOUNG AND NOT FULLY DEVELOPED.  SINCE THIS IS THE CASE
YOU LOOK TO THE PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS OF THE PUPPY
YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET.  MAKE SURE THAT AT LEAST BOTH
SIRE AND DAM ARE FULLY HEALTH TESTED AND IDEALLY ALL
FOUR GRANDPARENTS.  SINCE THE BREED IS STILL FAIRLY
YOUNG AND A LOT OF THE TESTING IS FAIRLY NEW IT IS NOT
ALWAYS EASY TO FIND 4 GRANDPARENTS THAT ARE FULLY
HEALTH TESTED.  
YOU SHOULD ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE PARENTS OF
THE PUPPY YOU ARE THINKING OF PURCHASING ARE
FULLY HEALTH TESTED.

BELOW ARE LINKS TO SITES THAT WILL HELP YOU.  PLEASE TAKE
THE TIME TO READ THEM AND LEARN WHAT QUESTIONS TO ASK.  
THIS IS A VERY LONG COMMITMENT.  YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF
AND YOUR NEW ADDITION.
