Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
As an interim measure until the official register provided by the Kennel Club is fully up and running, the SEISC has decided to offer an opportunity for owners to post their recent PRA rcd4 DNA test results.
This will be on our PRA rcd4 page.
This is available to all owners worldwide not just SEISC members and will be in a similar format to that already used by the Kennel Club.
For further details please see the Club website www.seisc.co.uk.
Listing will be available sometime today - slight kink in my "html" !!
I'm sorry to hear your news, Jean & Noella. I know you as breeders will have to find your way.
At this stage the question goes through my mind of how do we as breeders of affected stock deal with the question about possible brothers & sisters also being affected? At the moment we have been concentrating on how this will affect our breeding stock and have not spoken much about how best to deal with this next question. We are responsible for the pups we have bred. When a breeder knows of the risk of having bred 'affecteds' do they send all puppy owners the relevant information and ask for them all to be tested? Even though an 'affected' according to DNA test may never actually become blind during the majority of their life. Personally I think I would try to pass on all the information I have and leave it to the owners to decide if they wish to test or not. How are other breeders dealing with this situation?
