The Bulldog Breed Council Health Scheme is intended to be an assessment of the natural health and conformation of the dog.
Owners should send with their applications full details of any operations their dog has had so that it can be decided if this is likely to have an impact of the results of the assessments.
Depending on the level applied for many things are not likely to be considered relevant and will not affect the issuing of a certificate but if information is not disclosed and at a later stage any dog is found to have undergone surgery that could have altered the results of any test e.g. soft palate reduction, surgery for Entropion and others, the Breed Council may decide to withdraw any awards given and in extreme circumstances the Breed Council may decide on a period of exclusion for an owner from participation in the scheme.
All documentation should have the dogs microchip number on.
