    it might sound silly, but obv dogs do get health tests and hip/elbow scores ect..

    do cats?

    if not what do they get instead and is it breed specific?

    thanks :)

    They can but there is only speculation in some breeds that it is specific to those breeds. Very few cases of it, it seems.

    Some Maine Coon breeders get hips & hearts checked as they can suffer from HD & HCM :( not sure on other breeds or tests though.
