“I am so grateful for this information. When looking at the predispositions for Chihuahuas, I noticed that they are prone to glaucoma. I feel lucky that this was detected before she became blind.”

A Must Have for Dog Owners!
I first decided to download this app when Dr. Dixon (the author of this app) treated my Pomeranian. It’s a wonderful app that lists out what your dog is predisposed to according to breed and age, and tells you what your pet should be tested for according to its age. You won’t be disappointed!
Got this app and used it for all our families dogs!
We used this app for our first dog and were were so impressed that we shared it with all our family and friends. It’s nice to get recommendations for risk prevention catered to my 4 dogs breeds!
I got this app just to check the dog breeds, it is really sooooo informational and I got to choose the best breed of dog for my sister's bday! She was so happy with the Shih Tzu I got for her! This app has been so helpful to put a smile on my sister's face! Thanks a lot!!
