Health Testing

VCA Welfare Foundation

Health Screening

As our VCA Code of Ethics states, “VCA members shall breed only with the intention of improving the breed by breeding only those Vizslas who conform to the standard as recognized by the American Kennel Club and who exhibit soundness, stable temperament and natural hunting ability. Further, VCA members shall breed only those dogs who have a DNA number (a DNA Number is not required for dogs who passed away prior to 2007) and are free of serious hereditary defects (including epilepsy, progressive retinal atrophy, Von Willebrands, entropion and cranial muscular atrophy), and are over two years of age and have been x-rayed and OFA-certified as free from hip dysplasia.” [source: https://www.vcaweb.org/about/code_of_ethics.shtml]

In addition, the VCA Welfare Foundation recommends that all breeding stock be screened for hypothyroiditis and eye disease in order to receive a CHIC number. Optional testing includes advanced cardiac and sebaceous adenitis, if symptomatic, in accordance with the Orthopedic Foundation of Animals (OFA) and the VCA Official Health Statement . Further, the VCA Welfare Foundation recognizes Penn Hip as an effective hip screening tool.
