pedegree english bull terrier mandatory health checks
Please sign this petition as part of a case with the KENNEL CLUB to make them enforce mandatory health checks on bull terrier breeders under the accredited breeder scheme.
The Kennel club are responsible for a lot of good work but I feel they fail us on this issue.
My bull terrier was purchased from a breeder under the accredited breeder scheme and has had to go for extensive corrective surgery due to Luxating Patella.
Im sure there are lots of people out there with health issues regarding there bullies, Here's your chance to make a difference.
Please sign up as I belive we could make a change towards the future health of our bull terriers.
Why leave it up to the breeder who's motives for breeding are not always trustworthy.
There are no good reasons for PDK, UPC, ECG Doppler, BAER and DNA testing not to be carried out along with regular checks for patella luxation.
By not having these checks in place as a compulsery active health monitioring system the health of the breed will suffer in the future because there are too many irresponsible breeders out there breeding for profit only and do not want to pay the money to ensure the health of their stable and effectivly ruin all the good work health concious breeders put in.
So please sign and help weed out the bad breeders amongst the good and help ensure a healthy future for our bullies.
If anyone has or has had a dog that suffered with luxating patella regardless which breed please contact me as the Animal Health Trust would like to build up a data base of genes from dogs with the condition.
They will send you a simple swab kit, All you need to do is swab your dogs mouth and send it back to them, If they get enough DNA samples they could apply for funding to investigate what is causing this condition to be present within our dogs.
Please sign and for those who have thank you very much.
DO NOT BUY PUPPIES FROM BREEDERS THAT DO NOT HEALTH TEST.
