WARNING

There is NO "state of the art" DNA test to determine whether the Biewer/ Biewer ala Pom Pon/ Biewer Yorkshire Terrier/ Biewer Yorkie/ Biewer Terrier is a carrier of ANY life threatening/ life altering diseases.

There are approximately 25 diseases being ID'd via DNA at this time. However they are very breed specific- In other words if you have your Biewer tested for one of these diseases or all of them at $50.00 per test, they will test clear for this disease because there is NO MARKERS to identified in the Biewer breed.

thanks Nancy ! People need to know this testing is not out there since some are jacking up the price on this what seems to be a scam.

Also seems some think the Biewer is unhealthy but it isnt .. they have the same issues that our beloved Yorkies can have

oh the liver shunt testing is a good thing to do. This was supposedly so call testing that they are saying can be done from a DNA profile and so far a lot of us have called labs and there is no such test...Nancy can explain better

I have three Biewers and have had 2 litters all are healthy without additional testing other than the normal testing you should do before breeding. I love Yorkies and getting Biewers was the logical step.
