​​​EYE TESTING, DNA TESTING AND VOLUNTARY MEASURING OF DNA TESTED PBGVS​ -  Corley Village Hall.

​FREE EYE TESTING:  If your PBGV has been DNA tested for the POAG mutation, or is hereditarily clear, you are invited to a free eye testing session.  An AHT ophthalmologist will check your PBGV’s eyes but you will receive no BVA/KC certification.  

​DNA TESTING:  If you would like to have your PBGV’s DNA tested, the AHT has offered to take swabs for a modest discount.  If 20 or more orders are placed , they will offer a 20% discount.  Less than 20 and the AHT will provide a 10% discount code to be used when ordering the test via the AHT webshop.

                               ​PLEASE BRING YOUR PBGV'S REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE WITH YOU.
​YOUR PBGV DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ENTERED AT THE CLUB OPEN SHOW BEING HELD AT THE SAME TIME 

​YOUR PBGV'S HEIGHT:  To progress the AHT’s theory that dogs with mutations in ADAMTS17 tend to be short, they wish to take this opportunity to measure more PBGVs. This will enable them to see whether height is correlated with genotype. It may explain why PBGVs have such a high frequency of the POAG mutation when GBGVs don’t seem to carry the mutation at all.

                                  To book any session, please contact Vivien Phillips on
                                         01442 851225 or vphillips@btinternet.com.
                                         Extended deadline for reply is 28 February.
