  1. But really what is the point. There really is nothing I take my dogs to vet about that I would worry about ending up on some database. It might help pick up trends in our breeds that we might not see until much later, provided that information is given back to us. And as I said before it will only track MC numbers back to the dogs themselves, so my dogs may help prove that my breeds health status is not a welfare issue.
  2. I wil ask my Vet about this. Last time I asked he was not on the system.
  3. The microchip tracking will make that a non issue, if the MC numbers tracks back ot an ANKC dogs then it goes on that dogs record, in fact it stops ANKC dogs from being blamed for other non ANKC dogs problems. The way I am looking at it is, it will hopefully clear up a lot of unknown information. It can in fact prove that ANKC dogs are notsick dogs, and just like with the Chi discussion, it will prove if Chi are getting Dx with eye disease at the vets office or at a specialty vet. Then we can deal with the facts. From the EBV point of view I think it woudl be great to have several generatio
  4. LOL that is likely true but we only have ourselves to blame for this situation, in my opinion. Now as I understand it, the total disease tracking system is not near complete yet. All dogs will soon have to be microchiped ANKC will have to collect the MC number on every dog ad link it to the dogs registration number. Vets will send the information linked to the dogs MC number. Uni collects all the registration records with MC number and downloads the vet records directly on to each dogs uni record. So only a disease for the dog with the KC MC number will be recorded for that dog, makin
  5. Firsly I do not know if Chi have no eye disease in Australia or not, I am working off of Toy dogs information that the chi is not eye tested in this country and she is not aware of any eye disease. However in the UK, US, Canada, Sweeden, Norway, Finland, they either highly recommend or mandate eye certs for Chi. That is all I know. I think breeders need to proactive espcially right now and yes they should be able to prove their dogs are not sick if they are being accused by 'these' decisions makers. I do a DNA test on my dogs that I know they are negative on, because Kennel club people are
  6. In my breed all diseases it is accused of having it does have. We also as a breed have a very good history of testing for disease and doing research. both inside the kennel clubs and outside of the kennel clubs.
  7. We should perhaps be clear that this is a list of both congenital and hereditary conditions complied by LIDA. Some of the conditions are listed as a result of a vet seeing a dog in their clinic that the owner says is that breed and reporting the condition for the database. There is no indication in this list which are genetic and which are congenital as a result of (for example) one reporting. I will give an example: The listing of Vaginal Hyperplasia for Pyrenean Mountain Dog was the result of a vet seeing a puppy of that breed with a mild case of this condition (which later corrected as
  8. Well all I know is about a year ago, they had a disease listed for my breed that had been studied and was not in the breed, I sent the informaion and it was removed. I notice today, that they have also removed another disease that was found in a very limited number of dogs which I think was a good choice to remove it. Today I also notice it is missing one disease ( I am sure it was listed before) that is well known in the breed, which I will send them an email about now and ask them to add it. Other than that one missing disease, I think my breed looks just about right.

  11. Yes but you have to test them first to find out and why I asked if any breeders are testing their dogs eyes?

  14. I have never heard of a connection between any of the PRA diseases and merle gene, ca you give me a refference for where you read that? Dachshounds and shetland sheepdogs do have PRA but not X linked, so it could not have come from them. 'other ones they listed, they are quite common not only in chis but in all toy breeds across the board' Sorry not following, are you sayin that all the rest of disease (22 of them)are common in chis and in all toys? So are they being tested/screened for, or just considered part of the toy breeds? Are most breeders at least doing a certified eye exam an
