My wife and I only breed Irish Setters that have been health tested for diseases that are common in Irish Setters. These diseases are three types of premature blindness, bad or dysplastic hips, bad or shallow elbow joints, and Thyroid disease. These tests are expensive but are the only way to "breed out" the diseases that almost destroyed this wonderful breed of dog. If you are considering buying/adopting an Irish Setter that comes from parents with no health tests, you should pay no more than $150-$200 for the puppy. Additionally, any pups from non-health tested parents should not be bred as they may continue to spread the genetic diseases that the AKC and parent club Irish Setter Club of America are trying to eliminate. If you click on Our Boys or Our Girls, then click on a specific dog, you will see the tests results. Additionally, we have paid to have these results posted to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, www.offa.org so that the whole world can see them. If a breeder says they have performed the tests but the tests are not posted, you should demand to see the paper copy results of the tests that every breeder receives after having the tests completed. During the 1970s and into the 80s, it was not unusual for an entire litter to go blind before the age of 3. Today with DNA testing, reputable breeders are eliminating these horrible problems by breeding only genetically clear Irish Setters.
