Recommended tests and what we do

Hips, Elbows, Knees, Thyroid, Heart, Eyes

At BluHouse Mastini we prefer to have Hip, Elbow, Stifle (Patella), Heart and Eye tests on our dogs. Some dogs get Thyroid and temperament testing as well. Not all of our dogs will get all of the tests, and this especially applies to our dogs sent into other homes as pets or otherwise. We are currently advocating that the Neapolitan Mastiff to be included as an OFA CHIC breed. We also strongly believe that all test results should be public so that all current and future breeders and even Neapolitan Mastiff owners can benefit through the added information. All of out test results can be found on the OFA website, and you can search for our dogs specifically by using our ‘BluHouse’ kennel name.
