There is a DNA test available for this now. I would definitely let your breeders know, as they will want to test the sire and dam of the litter. My understanding is that carriers should be bred to clears, and not to another carrier.
I don't think there is a lot that can be done for it, but my understanding is that it is primarily a cosmetic issue and not one that will hurt the dog. I have heard recommendations of fish oil and vitamins as well.
