ASHGI’s IDASH Pedigree Analysis Service provides breeders with a way to determine how much risk their dogs carry for a variety of inherited diseases, defects, and faults including epilepsy. In the early 1980s, C.A. Sharp, ASHGI’s first president, started collecting health data. Her archives and those accumulated by ASHGI provide the basis for the pedigree analysis reports. Knowing how much pedigree risk a dog has for epilepsy or any of the other inherited issues enables breeders to make informed breeding decisions.
