BVA and the Kennel Club work in partnership to provide a number of health screening programmes - the Canine Health Schemes (CHS).
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 literature using the
order form or by contacting the CHS team on
020 7908 6380 or
BVA and the Kennel Club have published updated results for the
Hip Dysplasia (116 KB PDF) and
Elbow Dysplasia (105 KB PDF) Schemes. The results for both schemes show a steady reduction in the incidence and severity of the two conditions, and underline the value of the schemes to dog breeding and welfare. The results will be updated on an annual basis.
