This brings the total to over 170 MINIATURE PINSCHERS that have been screened and submitted for inclusion in the data base.
The results so far are very encouraging, but we still need more dogs to be tested. At the moment, the results show that there are a lot of Min Pins out there who are doing well in the show ring who have healthy patella’s. The more we test with good scores, the less justification there is to breed with dogs with slipping patella’s or who have not been tested.
It would be great if we could have all our breeding stock tested under the scheme – apart from the health aspects, it also helps to put a clear gap between responsible breeders and the puppy farmers.
The test forms and a copy of the Putnam Test protocol information for the veterinary surgeon can be downloaded from the Miniature Pinscher Club website.http://miniaturepinscher.co.uk at the ‘Breed Health’ tab. The download and submission of scores to be included on our data base is also available to non-members.
We can also include other individuals who have been tested without this system providing the form/certificate is signed by a practising veterinary surgeon in the UK.
