Von Willebrands Disease
Von Willebrands Disease (vWD)
vWD(type1) and Neonatal Encephalopathy DNA screening for Standard Poodles
Following consultation with the Standard Poodle Breed Health
Co-ordinator in the UK, The Kennel Club has agreed to set up a new DNA Testing Scheme for vWD (type 1) in this breed.
Several UK Laboratories offer testing and also send the KC results directly:
Animal DNA Diagnostics
Pet Genetics Lab
Many other labs perform the tests and owners can send their results to KC
The Kennel Club has a list of all the labs here.
It is a requirement in the SPC code of ethics that members conduct these prior to breeding as confirmed by the Kennel Club here
All results will be recorded in the Breed Records Supplement, on the dog's registration certification and any progeny certificates, and will appear on the Kennel Club website.
