Scottish Kennel Club is delighted to be able to offer the following service provided by Dr Laura Hamilton BVM&S PgC SAC MRCVS from Animals 1st Vets, Macmerry, East Lothian:

KC RFGS BOAS testing for Bulldogs, French Bulldogs and Pugs at £35 each

or £40 for BOAS scheme plus Breed Health Club Bronze/ Silver Health Certificate

Dr Laura Hamilton will also be providing Veterinary services throughout the duration of the show should any emergency arise.

Mr Malcolm Davidson, BVM&S, CertVOphthal MRCVS (Member of BVA Eye Panel) will be in attendance each day of the show testing under the KC/BVA Scheme for:

1. Progressive Retinal Atrophy

2. Hereditary Cataract

3. Retinal Dysplasia

4. Collie Eye Anomaly

5. PHPV & Other diseases

NOTE:  Mydriatic drops which dilate the dog's pupils will be used in all eye tests.  These allow a more satisfactory examination.  The drops are short acting and will not affect the performance of the dogs in the show ring (if preferred, dogs may be tested after judging)

PLEASE NOTE:  all dogs tested under the above schemes must have an identifying chip.  No certificate can be issued if the chip is not present and readable at the time of examination.

Although any breed can be examined for eye disease, currently only the results f those breeds that appear on Kennel Club Schedule A of Eye Scheme are sent to the Kennel Club for inclusion on computer records and printing in the Breeds Records Supplement.

All Kennel Club registered dogs eligible:  £45.00 per dog (including VAT) - Bookings can be made using the booking form in the schedule or online via Fosse Data.  You can also book via contacting the SKC offices.  No appointment is necessary and is based on a first come first served basis unless otherwise arranged prior. Please remember to bring along the dog’s KC registration form.  Times each day will be from 10.00am to 1.00p.m. then 2.00p.m. to 4.30p.m. with last drops being at 12.30pm and 4.00pm respectively - you are asked to register with Mr Davidson in the Highland Hall.
