Subject: Health: Irish Setter Health Survey by ISCA & the ISCA Foundation
Completed...... easy for me though with only 1 Irish Setter.
Hello Lois, there is no date limit in the notes, I would do a current dog first so that you see that you can remember the history for the dogs from a long time back
Oh, I never thought of doing one for all my previous Irish. I'll work on that now.
phew!! all done and think it is very worthwhile but don't envy those of you who have multiple ones to complete...three was enough for me. Thank you for posting this though xx
One done one to go. didn`t know there were so many things Abbie hasn`t had wrong with her <:0)
Both done <:0)
Very interesting survey!
Made me check a couple of things on the web too! I was glad to see someone is trying to collect all this data about our dogs, it should be able to find some very interesting information.
I've done for one but to be honest without collecting details of the pedigrees i cannot see that this will get us anywhere except maybe into the hands of someone who will say" this that and other conditions have been reported in Irish Setters & brand us as a very unhealthy breed.
The uk have also done health surveys & I think we already know which conditions are causing the most problems. much better to concentrate on finding ways to avoid them.
If the breeding of each dog was recorded then it would be much more worth while. sorry but I don't think i will be filling out the 20 or so other questionaires for dogs I've owned since 1973, most who were put to sleep in an old age.
I am probably being stupid but I can't see the point in this........
How can the results for this be accurate unless EVERYBODY who owns IS now and EVERYBODY who has owned them in the past (even if they don't own any now), fill out the questionnaire?
