The ARTC Board of Directors has recommended the following Health Screenings to be the minimum health screenings for reputable breeding practices. The ARTC has requested the following tests be required by Chic for the assignment of Chic numbers:
Baer - Normal hearing
Cerf - Normal sight
Petalla - Normal Petellas
In the coming weeks the ARTC will be making a determination as to adding the Primary Lens Luxation (PLL) DNA test as well as the New Late Onset Ataxia DNA test to the requirements for a Chic number.
