Why Test?

This genetic test helps breeders identify horses carrying the PSSM1 and WFFS alleles. Informed breeding choices can prevent the birth of affected foals. While PSSM1 affects muscle metabolism, WFFS is a fatal connective tissue disorder. Testing for these conditions is often required by studbooks and is highly recommended during pre-purchase exams to ensure the horse's health and performance.
