WICANI: The home of happy collies!

Breeding 'HOLISTIC' Collies! ...

HEALTH STATS

 I decided to create a page showing the basic health stats of our Collies at a glance, more results will be added as we receive them.
We are presently preparing to hip score our breeding collies, however please read my thoughts on HD ( still in preparation)
Recently we have concentrated on importing Collies of North American lineage, this has cost us thousands of pounds and left our bank
balance needing time to recuperate. We are testing every dog for MDR1 and CEA....hips WILL be done shortly and the first dog is already
booked in for X-ray. Good-fellow is already tested for HD as is our lovely old girl Hadomars Touch of Darkness. In fact 'Angel' has absolutely
perfect hips, the score could not be better, she has 0 degree of HD. All Dogs we send overseas are of course tested for HD and the vast majority
have proven to have fabulous hip scores. Many of the outside sires we have used over the years have also been hip scored, and we will not breed
with Collies that have sub standard construction and movement. Luckily this has protected us to a high degree. However, watch this space for HD
results.
All clinical eye results were obtained between 6 and 7 weeks of age. We do not accept the go-normal syndrome.
The expression 'Normal eyed' is given to dogs carrying the True
normal eye gene
(confirmed by clinical examination at 6 weeks of age but can be fully supported by DNA analysis)

Please read my comments and thoughts on CEA.
An MDR1 result of +/+ is the BEST POSSIBLE RESULT and +/- is he second best result.
It is estimated that only 15% of Rough Collies IN THE WORLD are carrying a normal eye gene, and only 5%
are non carrier for CEA (carrying two normal eye genes) we are doing our bit to increase this number!
