The only way to reduce genetic illness is through research to assist in knowledgeable breeding decisions. Understanding the exact cause of death is central to this goal. The only way to know what has taken your beloved dog is through biopsy and necropsy (autopsy). here is often a cost for necropsy. To encourage necropsy among our membership, the HMBMDC has developed the Necropsy Reimbursement Program which includes guidance in advance of any problem and reimbursement of ½ the cost, up to $125.00 of the necropsy. Information on your dog will be entered into the Berner-Garde database.
