The Club currently runs Open Registries for Sebaceous Adenitis and Addison's Disease which are available from the Club Secretary.
The Club actively encourages members & breeders to test for any Hereditary Disease before breeding, this is a condition of membership as laid down in the Code Of Ethics.
The Club is actively working with the Animal Health Trust and
The Kennel Club to raise funds for a DNA test for Sebaceous Adenitis and eventually other Hereditary Diseases. Check out the progress of our Shirley Walne DNA Fund.
All information on Sebaceous Adenitis and any other Health Issues regarding the Standard Poodle are available from Mrs Sandy Vincent, or on our On-line Reference page.
