The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club
At Bagworth, Leicestershire on Saturday 27th September 2008
Once again the Clinic was very successful and showed the dedication of owners to the health of pedigree dogs.
A total of 112 Cavaliers had their hearts tested under the Club's MVD testing programme by Simon Swift. Of these, 6 were over 8 with clear hearts and had blood taken to assist Simon's research at Liverpool University.
56 dogs had their eyes tested by Mr McPherson under the KC/BVA schemes and these included other breeds who, along with the Cavaliers tested, were supporting their breed's health programmes.
Alongside the health tests, owners were able to have their dogs micro-chipped and Mr Alan Walker was present to take photographs of the dogs.
The Clinic raised over £150 for the CKCS Club Health Fund. This Fund is used to aid research into Cavalier related health problems.
The CKCS Club thanks everyone who took their dogs for testing and a very special thanks must go to Sylvia Lymer and all those who gave their time to make this a succesfull event.
The next Health Clinic is to be held by the Southern CKCS Club on Sunday 26th October at Worplesdon Memorial Hall, nr Guildford, Surrey go to www.cavalier.info/clubs/southern for further information.
