"We need to quit whispering about defects, and gossiping about defects, and instead set up a sound program that allows the standard selection procedures to go on so that we breed good dogs and avoid major genetic defects." - Dr. George A. Padgett, DVM

Dr. Padgett is a veterinary pathologist at Michigan State University with special interest in canine genetics and what role breed clubs play in the control of genetic diseases in their particular breed. He is a founder of the GDC which is an open registry for monitoring health issues in canines.
