The last few weeks I have been completing more health tests for our dogs, some were DNA tests, some eye tests with the BVA vet and hip and elbow scoring done.
Very pleased that the whole Silvestre breeding team were eye tested clear again for another year.
Maverick completed all the DNA tests and is clear. Lane finally completed her last DNA test and clear. Maverick completed his elbow and hip scoring.
Now you won't find most of our health tests we have done online anywhere as we now send our hips and elbows to Australia. Our kennel club accept these tests but they are not published. They only publish UK bva health tests. The reason. why most of us have decided to use Australia is quickness. Its a 48 hour turn around, where as the UK system is weeks to months before any of us see a result.
Every single health tests we have done is printed off the laboratory results, the X-ray results, the eye testing results and I pop into a large folder. These can be viewed when people visit us. Copies are only given to those people who wish to show their dogs from us with the potential to breed.
I now have to complete Birdies DNA tests.
Our younger team who will not be bred until 2024 will under go all the relevant health tests during 2023.
