Certain breeds of horses are more likely to develop genetic diseases than others. Genetic disease have also been reported to occur in mixed breed horses as well.

VGA will work with breed clubs and veterinarians to develop DNA test panels that are specific to the breed.

VGA recommends that all mixed breed horses are screened for the full suite of genetic disease because we don't know their exact genetic breed makeup.
