As i have previously mentioned that Hungarian Vizsla breed health requirements changed July 2021. They come into force Jan 2022. All Vizsla that are breed from require:
Hip scoring, Elbow scoring, Glaucoma testing, BVA annual eye testing.
We have had to have several dogs elbow scored. Todays turn was Tango who was x-rayed. We were unsure if he would have excellent elbows due to being 7 years of age and a jumper, but his X-rays were excellent and vet hugely pleased telling us it should be a 0:0 score. We get conformation of this during December time.
I have just one more Vizsla to do now and she is booked in December time.
The costs of health testing dogs today is a lot. But we believe that if a health test is available then it should be done, to better the breed. To not sell dogs which could go onto have potential health issues, causing pain and suffering to the dogs, and heart ache to owners. We do our utmost to help the breeds we own.
