Need another reason to enter our open show? Of course not! Sue Harris, Breed Health Co-ordinator, had organized Heart Testing at the Kennel Club Building on the same day as our open show. There's a discounted rate for members, at a price you'd be difficult to find cheaper elsewhere. Full details are in Sue's message below, and remember entries for our Open Show are still being taken, closing on April 15th.
''I am delighted to announce that a Heart Testing day has now been organised to run in conjunction with The Central & Southern GSP Society Open Show on 4th May 2019 at The Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh Park Warwickshire.
Heart testing though not mandatory in German Shorthaired Pointers is widely accepted as one of the recommended tests to be carried out on all breeding stock.
It is a one off test that requires only that the dog stand still and quiet as possible, whilst a Veterinary Cardiologist listens to the dog’s heart through a stethoscope. He then records any audible noise and grades it from 0 to 6, Zero being no audible noise whatsoever. These categories reflect any possible flow abnormalities.
We are able to offer to members of either the GSP Club, GSP Association or the Central & Southern GSP Society a discounted price of £25.00 per dog, to non members £30 per dog. Preference will be given to GSPs, however other breeds are welcome. All applicants must be pre booked via a form which will be available shortly. Registration documents MUST be brought to show. Time slots will run from approx 9.30 until 1pm.
For further enquiries or to prebook please contact Sue Harris (Barleyarch) via Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org''
