CNM Clinic

 

In recent years D.N.A.Testing has been developed for two hereditary defects that affect Labradors, P.R.A. (an eye defect) and C.N.M.(Centronuclear Myopathy)

 

The results of the testing carried out so far have shown that several well used stud dogs of recent years are carriers of these diseases and there is therefore the potential for a

marked increase in affected stock.

 

Midland Gundog Society has arranged for a Clinic testing for both defects to be held on Friday 18th July commencing at 9.00 at Little Riste Farmhouse, Long Whatton, Leicestershire, which is very close to Junction 24 of the M1 Motorway

 

The number of places will be restricted and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

 

There is no obligation to have both tests, or to attend the Lecture, and you may if you wish just attend the Presentation but we do need to know the numbers in order that we can organise the day.

 

In addition to the above John Goodyear B.V.M.S. Cert V Ophthal. M.R.C.V.S. will be in attendance to carry out B.V.A./K.C. eye testing.

 

The Optigen Test should be booked on line and will be discounted by 5%, an additional 20% may be claimed with the MGS clinic number. www.optigen.com There will be an additional charge of 3.00 to cover swabs, postage and packing.

 

A Microchipping service will also be available at 15.00 per dog.

 

Please complete the attached application form, enclosing a s.a.e. and return to:-

Midland Gundog Society Clinic, Little Riste Farmhouse, West Meadow Lane.
