MESSAGE FROM THE RKC BREED HEALTH REP

It has been highlighted that the current list of Doppler results still contains some mistakes. Please check your results and advise . There are some dogs still omitted because their owners have not advised that they wish for their results to be published as their tests were done pre-publication so for those that would like to see them on the list please advise too. This list was previously updated because of some inaccuracies which is a disappointing error to have to raise again. It is extremely important for all concerned that these issues are dealt with swiftly.

Health Liaison Representative to the Royal Kennel Club.

CKCS HEART TEST RESULT FORMS

Please note that the CKCS Heart Test Result forms should be sent to Mrs E Smith, 9 Elm Grove, Larbert, Stirlingshire, FK5 3LP for inclusion in the research database and for the production of the Over 5 Heart Listing.
The Kennel Club Doppler Heart Scheme Results

The Kennel Club are working with their IT department to be able to produce the Doppler Heart Scheme results in a format that will generally be understood, i.e. explanation of the traffic light system for suitability for breeding. The Breed Clubs have asked for this in a format for each individual dog’s record. Those that were involved pre-publication will be given the option to submit previous results but the Kennel Club still have this as "work in progress".
In the meantime there is no recognition for those dogs that have a clear heart on their doppler paperwork to be able to go on the Club’s "Over 5 Clear List" and no means for anyone to find these dogs, particularly stud dogs.
If you wish to have your dog’s name added to the "Over 5 Clear List" you may submit a copy of your doppler result to the Scottish Club Secretary, Liz Smith – Liz maintains this list.

The form includes details of any health certificates obtained for the parents, so that prospective puppy buyers can have more information before visiting a possible puppy.
If you wish to add your dogs to the Club’s Register, download the Puppy Register Form and send to The Co-ordinator.
Anyone looking to purchase a puppy is recommended to contact one of the Club Puppy Register Co-ordinators, Veronnica Hull, telephone 01268 727248 for details of puppies available. - Puppy Register

When your puppies have been sold would you please advise the Puppy Register Co-Ordinator so that they may be removed from the lists.

THE BENEVOLENT FUND

From time to time events overtake us and we find ourselves searching for a way to help us out of a situation. The Benevolent Fund is there to help any Member to cope during a time of difficulty. You may need to kennel your dog if you have to go into hospital … or during a time when you feel you are being pulled in every direction due to family troubles.
Any one of the three Trustees will be pleased to discuss your situation and it may well be that we can help towards the problem financially by ensuring your dogs are properly cared for during that time. The Benevolent Fund does not pay veterinary fees, but may be able to help in other respects.
Please don’t hesitate to ask … all calls to us are totally confidential and no details are ever passed on.
