    PDSA suspends involvement in Kennel Club events


    ‘We welcome and support recent progress but evidence of real change is needed’ says charity

    The UK’s leading veterinary charity, PDSA, is suspending its involvement in Kennel Club dog shows and events, including Crufts. The charity, which provides free veterinary care for the pets of people in need, has participated in these events for over 30 years.

    After lengthy consideration PDSA reached its decision based on the evidence of health issues affecting some pedigree dog breeds. Despite its withdrawal from forthcoming events, the charity stresses its commitment to working with the Kennel Club and with the veterinary profession, welfare organisations and other interested parties to bring about health improvements...........http://www.pdsa.org.uk/managed/pr_me...on.html?id=971

    With each additional withdrawal I think the message is loud and clear that a lip service approach by the KC will not be acceptable. The RSPCA is going to do their own breed review and now these Vets are going to do their own breed review. If at the end of reviews the vets and KC could come together and a good comprehensive outcome emerge wouldn't that be outstanding!
