WHAT HEALTH CLEARANCES ARE DONE?
We complete all testing recommended by the Clumber Spaniel Club of America.
OFA x-ray evaluation of hips and elbows: Ideally, sire and dam OR at least one of them is OFA fair, good, or excellent on hips and ideally passing on elbows. At this time the OFA web site lists Clumbers at #8 of all the breeds for frequency of hip dysplasia.
CERF eye exam certificate.
PDP1and EIC genetic testing: The sire OR dam can be a carrier, but not both. There is a risk that some of the puppies will inherit PDH if both the sire and dam are carriers. Dogs that are affected should not be bred.
