The eye testing is THIS weekend!

The eye testing session at Hedge Green Cottage is this weekend-Saturday 15 July to be precise. Okay, you know and it’s down on the calendar but one year one person didn’t and they missed it. It’s a full day of testing so please be as on time as you can and report to the eye testing tent (to the right of the entry gate) when you arrive on the field.

If you have a booking for litter screening are you aware of this?

(BVA/KC/ISDS) Eye Scheme Microchipping and Litter Screening. The BVA/KC/ISDS Eye Scheme offers breeders the opportunity of screening their dogs for inherited eye disease using a straightforward eye examination. The results can then help breeders eliminate or reduce the risk of an eye disease being passed on to future generations.In certain breeds, inherited eye disease can be detected soon after birth and in such breeds it is advisable to screen the whole litter at between five and twelve weeks of age.

On 1st July 2017 it became a requirement that any puppy presented for litter screening has been microchipped prior to examination under the Eye Scheme.

Microchipping is compulsory for all dogs aged 8 weeks and over in the UK and 12 weeks and over in the Republic of Ireland. However some tests within the scheme are carried out most reliably when the puppy is aged between 5 and 7 weeks, so a microchip may need to be inserted at a slightly earlier age. This complies with the law and is a safe procedure for young dogs. Microchipping of ISDS registered Border Collie puppies prior to litter screening has been a requirement since 2013 and many puppies presented for examination have been microchipped at younger than 8 weeks of age. To date, no adverse effects have been reported.For more information about the scheme visit the BVA website at the button below. To find out which health tests or schemes are recommended for your breed, check the Kennel Club’s Breed Information Centre or the Hereditary Eye Disease leaflet; produced and approved by veterinary professionals and research scientists.
