GLEN HEALTH RECORDS

  • Clear, Carrier & Affected results for GPRA-crd3

  • In October 2010, at the request of the breed clubs, the Kennel Club set up a DNA Screening Scheme for GPRA-crd3.

    Results from Bochum & Optigen are updated on the KC database on a monthly basis and published in the KC's quarterly Breed Records Supplement (BRS).

KENNEL CLUB LINKS

  • Breed Information Centre - Glen of Imaal Terrier : This section includes a description of the breed, and has links to health information, breed club and breed rescue contacts, Kennel Club Assured Breeders and the breed standard.

  • Health Test Results Finder : This tool allows you to search for the health test results of any dog that is registered on the KC’s breed register. You can search by registered name, registration number or stud book number. The health schemes relevant to the Glen are the DNA Screening Scheme (crd3) and the BVA/KC Eye Scheme (GPRA).

  • Mate Select : Guides, services and information for breeders.

  • Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme (ABS) : The breed clubs have agreed that it should be a requirement for members of the ABS to have their breeding stock DNA tested for crd3 (unless known to be Hereditary Clear), and a recommendation to have their breeding stock eye tested annually for other types of eye disease.

  • Find A Puppy - Glen of Imaal Terrier : PUPPY SEEKERS - To be sure that your puppy is not not at risk of developing the blinding disorder crd3 (the Glen variant of progressive retinal atrophy), please ask about the crd3 status of the sire and dam of the litter - at least one parent MUST be DNA tested Clear or known to be Hereditary Clear. You can check for yourself by typing the names of the sire & dam into the Health Test Results Finder (see link above). If a Glen has been DNA tested or is known to be Hereditary Clear, the result will show alongside DNA test - PRA (crd3). If you need any help with your search, please do not hesitate to contact the EFG Health Coordinator: efghealth@gmail.com.

  • MyKC : This is the KC's new online service for both dog owners and breeders, where you can research pedigrees, keep records of weight and health checks, set up reminders for vaccinations and flea & worming treatments, and benefit from many exclusive offers for you and your dog.

  • Information Guides : The Kennel Club has put together a collection of information booklets for prospective and existing dog owners.

PERMANENT IDENTIFICATION (PI)

  • Having your Glen permanently identified may help to reunite you, should s/he ever go missing.

  • If you plan to travel abroad with your Glen, you will need a Pet Passport and your Glen will need to be permanently identified.
    Microchipping is the preferred method of PI but tattooing is currently also acceptable as long as the tattoo was applied before 3rd July 2011.

  • NB. Microchipping became compulsory by law in Wales from 2015, and England from 2016.

VetCompass

For more information, please click on the logo

We encourage all Glen owners to ask their veterinary surgery to consider signing up to the VetCompass project, to help with health surveillance of our lovely breed

The Royal Veterinary College (RVC), in collaboration with the University of Sydney, is undertaking a UK wide long term study of small animal disease. The aims of this project are to investigate the range and frequency of small animal health problems seen by veterinary surgeons working in general practice in the United Kingdom and highlight major risk factors for these conditions.

What information is collected?

VetCompass collects coded data relating to animals under veterinary care as well as to their associated disorders and treatment. The project does not collect client names, addresses or financial details.

Specific data collected include species, breed, age, sex, weight, microchip code and partial postcode. Also included are clinical examination, diagnosis and treatment information, in order to enable disease categorisation according to breed, age and sex.

Partial postcode is taken to help in mapping the level of disease across parts of the country, but provides only postal sector information. All published results will be anonymised.

You can download the following from the VetCompass pages:

THANK YOU!
