Canine Health Schemes

  • About the Schemes

    The BVA and the Kennel Club (KC) work in partnership to provide a number of health screening programmes - the Canine Health Schemes.

    The Canine Health Schemes enable breeders to screen for a range of inherited diseases so they can make informed decisions as to whether those dogs should be included in breeding programmes.

    You can order Scheme literature using the order form or by contacting the CHS team using the details below.
