Talking CERF Testing

Hi everyone, I wanted to share that Oreo went in for his CERF testing today and he got a clean bill of health.

The vet asked why I was getting it done, and I told her that it is part of my contract with my breeder that I get him CERF'd after he is one. She then asked me if there were problems in my breeders dogs, because I saw her skepticism, but I told her that my breeder likes to know how her breeding lines are and wants to ensure that all her dogs are healthy. The results of the testing is what determines who continues in the breeding program or not. I also mentioned to the DVM that reputable breeders do make this a practice. She was very impressed and said that it is very rare to have a dog voluntarily CERF'd and that she is very impressed with how some breeders ask for testing.

Another win for our wonderful, and REPUTABLE havanese Breeders! And a big thank you to my breeders, because if it wasn't for the care and screening they have done, Oreo would be this healthy.

Woooo Hoooo! Congratulations!

I just took Tinky, Martha and Hillary to have their annual CERF on Sunday. Maddie and Bandit (Maddie's littermate) were there also. I'm pleased to report that all five of the dogs had clear CERFs as well as Oreo. Yea!

Congratulations Oreo & Helen!

Congratulations to you and Tinky, Martha, and Hillary!! Did Maddie and Bandit get it done?? It is such a nice feeling to know that all the time and effort our breeders take is well worth it.

Yes, Maddie & Bandit were there for the CERF as their main purpose. They stuck around for the show to cheer on Piaget too.

I'll get Piaget's done in April - I didn't want to show him with dialated eyes. We didn't show until 2pm and the CERF clinic closed at 3pm and many were running to get theirs done after they showed. He won't be breeding anytime soon.

Congrats to ALL

Riley will be 2 next month and Monte 1 in Jan so we will be going soon as well. I am lucky the hospital only charges I think 30.00 per dog, just have to make the appointment.

That's a great price, Leeann! You are very fortunate. (We had a good deal at $25 at the clinic, but had to drive over an hour away to get to it and it is only offered once a year.)

Yikes Kimberly over an hour away and only once a year. I guess I did get lucky, this place is only 25 min. away and they do have group rates as well. I had orignally planned on going with a group of people but the date fell on the day I was flying out to pick up Monte so I just took Ry alone.
