Q. What are genetic disorders?

If you need a quick brush up, check out of the AHA's Nov '09 presentation on Genetic Disorders (in PDF format).  While most of this presentation is directed at the Arabian horse owner, the information found in pages 3-13 of this report is not breed specific.  The information is thoughtfully presented for the layman in an easy-to-understand manner and will benefit anyone needing a quick refresher course.  Pages 71-73 of the presentation include information on breeding, genetic testing, and research and are well worth reading.
