(Last updated August 2008)

The most common health and genetic tests used by breeders and owners of Staffordshire Bull Terriers includes evaluations for Hip Dysplasia, Elbow Dysplasia, Patellar Luxation, L-2-HGA (L-2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria), and Hereditary (Juvenile) Cataracts. Less commonly used tests include the Cardiac (Heart) test (used to detect heart murmurs), the BAER hearing test (used to detect congenital deafness) and Thyroid evaluations (to screen for hypothyroidism). The following links to summaries relate to each of these evaluations.
