When evaluating health information, it is important to distinguish between the need for concern in planning breeding and evaluating its consequences for breed health, versus the likelihood of encountering the disorder in a pet.  Health testing is important for the gene pool, not just for individual dogs that will be bred, to insure we have a good handle on overall gene pool health.
