    Default CMSM results now available on Kennel Club website

    The results for dogs tested under the BVA/KC scheme are now available from the Health Tests finder on the KC website.

    More info:

    A great step forward -- this was long promised and many decent health-concerned breeders had been frustrated that there was a long delay in making results available (as are test results for all other KC schemes). Some however, wanted results to remain private. Thankfully they were overruled in the case of this particular scheme. An important step for transparency, honesty and the future of the breed.

    This is great news, anyone searching for a cavalier puppy will, in the years to come, be able to look up the parents' names and see if they are scanned and what their grades are. Most scanning centres will automatically submit the scans to the BVA for grading and send the results to the AHT for inclusion in their EBVs.

    Breeders using the cheaper scanning centres, where no official BVA/KC grade is given, will be able to submit their scans for official grading and submission to the EBVs themselves. Old scans are accepted, as long as the quality is acceptable

    If a breeder claims their dog is scanned but no result is shown on the KC Health Test Result Finder, then the wise buyers should be wondering why?

    If anyone wants to try this out they can look up my Faith............. Wyredell Keeping Faith.

    There is still one slight problem that the KC has not sorted out. They are still showing an incorrect date for Faith's age at time of scanning. The scan was done in July 2011 when she was 3 years 11 months. They are displaying her age at the time the scan was graded.

    I think this is the link to the starting point for finding the scan results, is it not?

    I must say I find it easier to go straight to the Health Test Finder Results and put in the name of the cavalier. http://www.the-kennel-club.org.uk/se...t/Default.aspx

    Any guesses as to how many of the top 10 stud dogs have MRI results shown?

    The real breakthrough will be when breeders scan these genetically critical dogs as a rule, not an exception (if even at all ) as they have an overbearing impact on the breed's future -- as breeders who own or use them, and give lip service to being health focused breeders , know all too well.

    That these dogs are not scanned, and/or results not given publicly (so that finding scanned studs remains a huge challenge for truly health focused breeders) says everything about current show breeder priorities for the vast majority: they sadly remain money in pocket. show prestige priorities.

    Everyone knows this is an issue. Few will talk about it or push for change.

    I haven't found any cavaliers with MRIs listed. And I even tried Mareve Indiana. Given that his pups are still out in the world, I would think that Margaret would want the information available for future (dog) generations.

    Am I searching wrong?

    (I realize that we aren't supposed to post dog's registered names, but I think in this case it should be allowed.)
