GSD males are tested before breeding for this,is there a reason csv's are not? do they not have the same problem,and if they do not,why not?

Hey Layla,

I talked to a UK friend into GSDs and asked whether hemophilia A was a localized UK problem because I'd not heard that problem in the general GSD population. She gave me this info from a breeder she talks to:

The main source of haemophilia in the GSD seems to come from the famous dog Canto Von Der Wienerau, with his sons all being clear, and his daughters all being carriers. Although not tested, he died young in circumstances that would suggest that he was a haemophiliac. Although his sire was clear, the status of his mother was not known. All recent cases of the disease have been traced back to Canto through his daughters.

Because of this I believe this is why CsV are not tested for it.
