All I know is that with out PDE I would have had a very very painful dog for a hell of a lot longer as PDE was the sole reason I had Ruby scanned!!
I read the article in Dogs Today by Jemima Harison and she speaks about high lighting the sucess stories on the program but not forgetting what a long way to go there is with others!
And for Cavaliers there is such a very long way to go and maybe, just maybe when people see what little prgress there has been by the Kennel Club to help us out they will think again before buying from non health tested parents!!
Its is 'recommened' that parents are heart scanned, 'recommended' that parents are eye tested, recommend, recommend, recommend!! No mention of anything mandatory!!
And the Kennel Club say that the breeders are 'ON board' with the EBV scheme!!!
I'm sorry but PDE only started the ball rolling for these wonderful little dogs- now lets get serious and tell the Public what has really happened since- because if t wasn't for the Pet owner research schemes there wouldn't be much tto talk about would there!!!
