Message from The BGV Club Health Sub-Committee
We are aware that some would be buyers of Petits Bassets Griffons Vendeens are sometimes not aware of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma which can sadly affect the breed.
Although not prevalent there is sufficient concern that the parents of any puppies should be eye tested on an annual basis between the ages of 2 and 6 and all eye certificates should be available when puppies are viewed.
Hopefully by the end of the year, after 18 years of research and with the help of those with affected dogs sending us their DNA, The Animal Health Trust will have a one off DNA test for all PBGVs.
Please ensure that when buying a puppy that the testing procedure has been undertaken by the breeder and all eye test certificates are available. All breeders on the PBGV Breeders Directory and advertising puppies on the PBGV Puppy Register will be happy to provide these details.
