Please search using either the dog's stud book/registration number or its registered name, making sure that the information is exactly the same as is stated on the dog's registration certificate.

How long does it take for results to come back?
We aim to email results back to you within 35 working days from receiving your sample. However, the turnaround time is dependent on variable factors, such as the shipment time of your sample to the test location(s). As some of these factors are out of our control, the mentioned 35 working days is only an estimate.

I would like to speak to a Breed Health Coordinator?

Breed Health Coordinators (BHC) volunteer on behalf of breed clubs and councils to enable and improve the health and welfare of their chosen breed. Their main role is to collect data on the health of their breed and to collaborate with us on any health concerns the breed may have so they can prioritise these in the Breed’s Health and Conservation Plan (BHCP). To contact your breed’s Breed Health Coordinator, please select the relevant breed and scroll down to ‘Have any questions about health in your breed?’
