Hello there.
I wonder if you can help please.
When buying a puppy, if the dad is a poodle and has had a health check, does the show type cocker mum need to have had a health check too or are all diseases from the poodle side or recessive and therefore not of concern if dad is clear?
Many thanks on advance.

Ideally both parents will have all the relevant tests for both of the breeds involved. This rarely happens and breeders talk about hydrid immunity - this is just waffle and of course it is cheaper for the breeders to just test the male they use multiple times
