    DefaultHeart Condition - genetic?

    Quick question (but possibly not an easy one!)

    I met a great lab today and would consider asking his mom for referral to her breeder (assuming he's from around here). But I was told the dog has a heart condition (don't know any more details unfortunately) that requires him to take it easy (though he has ALOT of energy!).

    Are there heart conditions that are genetic? Does it depend on the specific condition? I haven't heard of testing labs for their heart?


    Thanks!

    There is also SAS which isn't seen much in Labs here. Big problem in Goldens though.

    Turns out it is genetic. I did not find the name of it. The dog was also a rescue so I don't know that I could have tracked down the breeder in the first place.
