    A vet does not have to breed a litter to know that a dog’s lirtsons are too small, or that the dog exhibits excessive stridor .or to recognize diamond eye (the reason the clumber was scrubbed). If people didn’t try to exaggerate the breed characteristics to the point that the dogs are harmed then this would not be necessary. As a vet, I am sick and tired of seeing dogs that cannot breath because they were bred to have a soft palate the size of a Mac truck, lirtsons the size of pin heads, and a trachea that has a smaller diameter than my pinky finger. I have had patients that have almost DIED because they got excited. And it is not like it is due to something hidden like cardiac disease. These problems are literally staring people in the face AND people like the problems so much that they are selectively breeding to get them. Sick. These characteristics that once allowed a dog to do its job have become something that does not allow it to live life fully.
