    @GatorRay there are only a few tests done for bullies, but this is one of them luckily. We have no labs in Finland that do this so we have to send the samples abroad. We're actually using a lab in Michigan. It's called Vetgen. They also test bullies for Canine multifocal retinopathy, all the other tests are for colour, pure breed etc.

    Thank you @Twice , this is what I love about this site, that people are so committed to their babies that they understand each others worry, pain, needs and want to help others with their babies too. I'm a softy and in tears here right now. I'll let you know when I get their answer.

    @Twice no word yet. Do you know anybody else than Kibowtech that would know? I just hate it when people/businesses don't bother to answer their emails.

    You could try to email Chris at thrivingpets. He is very knowledgeable about the products he sells and believe it or not, I don't think he's in it for the money. I could be wrong about that but he has never acted like it with any of my questions or orders.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    @Twice Chris answered, but didn't know. I got an answer from their maker too, when I asked again, but they didn't say if it would be beneficial or not. Just that what it's for. So it's better to pass. Usko is doing great and I don't want to risk it. Thank you anyway

    Hello,

    After 6 years of owning bulldogs, I am still learning more. A friend of mine in Croatia and another in Ukraine each have mentioned HU. They use their stud for breeding and in Europe males have to be tested to be certified to breed. They each had their stud tested and are HU clear. I thought it was a problem that only someone else's dogs would have.

    Now I have a dog that has stones and have been starting to do research on HU. I know that VET Gen does this testing but also UC Davis in California also does this testing.

    So, has anyone used either one of these testing companies and have any comments about them?

    I need to find out more about testing for HU.
    Any help would be appreciated,

    Thank you all~
    Good Day~

    If your dog has cystine stones he most likely doesn't have HU. He has Cystinuria. HU affected dogs can get urate stones and cystines stones are caused by Cystinuria. If I were you I would test for Cystinuria, but it looks like you have to shop around for that test cause it seems that they do it more for other breeds. Maybe if you call the labs that do it for other breeds and ask if they can test bulldogs for cystinuria.
