If they're not then nothing you show then will make a difference. You said you already tried telling them about hips and arthritis. Well, they will take your EPI research as just another 'attack' on their breeding practices.
My opinion, of course.
That's pretty much been my experience. As soon as you bring up EPI you get nothing but silence. I feel horrible for the pups that end up with it. Taking care of an EPI dog takes time, lots of money and it can be heartbreaking at times
