DNA Tests

DNA profiles and disease tests performed by Orivet & Genetic Science Services (GSS) have been collected by an approved collection method; that is the sample was collected by an approved person and the dog was identified by its microchip at the time of collection. All OFA samples were collected by a vet. Results affixed with VPI confirms that the collecting vet identified the dog by its microchip at the time of collection. All results listed as Normal by Parentage History (Normal BPH) have been approved using Australian National Kennel Council and/or OFA approved Normal by Parentage protocols. That is the parentage of dogs marked as Normal BPH has been verified by DNA analysis of both parents against the DNA profile of the dog listed.

Eyes Test Results

The Australian Veterinary Association in conjunction with the Australian National Kennel Council launched the Australian Canine Eye Scheme in 2006. Since then and commencing with my litter in 2007 all Tambuzi puppies have been eye screened under ACES at 6-8 weeks old. Further follow-up test mid life and a last test at 9+years old is carried out. Prior to ACES all breeding stock was tested regularly using the same diagnostics as currently used under the ACES.
