New heart scheme for Cavaliers to undergo trial phase

A new heart scheme for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has been developed by the Kennel Club (KC) and Veterinary Cardiovascular Society (VCS) in consultation with Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed clubs. The KC/VCS heart scheme, which is the first collaboration between all parties involved, is set to trial 100 dogs over the coming months before it rolls out to all Cavalier breeders and owners later in the year.
The aim is to reduce the prevalence of Mitral Valve Disease (MVD), a deadly heart disorder in Cavaliers that affects more than 40% of the breed in the UK alone.
Click to read the KC Press Release and for links to the FAQ.

Please note that the CKCS Heart Test Result forms should be sent to Mrs E Smith, 9 Elm Grove, Larbert, Stirlingshire, FK5 3LP for inclusion in the research database and for the production of the Over 5 Heart Listing.
Looking For a Puppy? - CKCS Puppy Register

The Cavalier Club runs a register of puppies available from Club Members who can put details of puppies and older dogs they have for sale on the Cavalier Club Puppy Register.
The Club has recently introduced a slightly more formal system for placing a dog on its Register. A form now needs to be completed which can be downloaded from the Puppy Register Pages. The form includes details of any health certificates obtained for the parents, so that prospective puppy buyers can have more information before visiting a possible puppy.
If you wish to add your dogs to the Club’s Register, download the Puppy Register Form and send to The Co-ordinator.
Anyone looking to purchase a puppy is recommended to contact one of the Club Puppy Register Co-ordinators, Veronnica Hull, telephone 01268 727248 and Sylvia Lymer, telephone 01530 831929, for details of puppies available. - Puppy Register

When your puppies have been sold would you please advise the Puppy Register Co-Ordinator so that they may be removed from the lists.
