Episodic Falling and Curly Coat/Dry Eye

"At the recent Cavalier Health Liaison Committee meeting, Clubs voted to ask
the Kennel Club to include all results from the EF CC/DE DNA tests in the
KC's registration system and in their Health Test Results Finder and
published by the Kennel Club in the Breed Record supplement. Furthermore the
Club's requested that all CKCS that are not already heritably clear should
be tested for both EF and DE/CC prior to breeding and that at least one
parent of each litter is free of each mutation, to ensure no affected
puppies can be produced or registered."...............


I am delighted to read this. At long last, two years after the DNA tests were first made available, perhaps we will see them added to the Assured Breeders Scheme.

Congratulations to Barbara Reese who spent so many long years fundraising and working with researchers to make this possible.
