Online Havanese Health Survey for ALL Havanese

Joan Ambrose, President of the HCA, has asked that I share this important information with the Forum. - Alison Brackman
Dear Friends,

You have a wonderful opportunity to help us learn more about Havanese by completing the final version of the Havanese Health Survey. Please go to <> and complete the survey for each of your pure-bred Havanese. No dog is identified in the survey, so all of your responses are completely confidential. It has been created and will be collated by two experts, Dr Jean Dodds and Dr Elsa Sell; outside experts who have done many surveys for other breeds. The entries and results are totally anonymous.

One survey should be done for each dog. We also would find significant information about any Havanese you have owned that has passed away. Anything you donít know just leave out, but do answer everything you can. We hope for surveys on at least 1,000 Havanese. The more we get the better our health statistics will be.

Everyone is eager to know the health status of Havanese. It has been 7 years since our last health Survey and many many Havanese have been born since that time. Ours is a healthy breed and we hope to keep it that way. To do so requires vigilance, health testing and careful breeding. In future we will be able to sponsor and encourage studies in the areas of the most concern for our breed.

Please take the survey and pass it along to all the Havanese owners you know. It does not matter where the dog was purchased only that it be pure-bred Havanese. When cross-bred the problems of other breeds can show up. Results from mixed breed dogs would be misleading.

Please be sure to enter your healthy dogs! We are not only looking for problems! The great majority of you will have healthy dogs according to our statistics of health test results on Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.

The survey will take you only a few minutes but the results will be of tremendous value to the breed. If you have a problem doing on line surveys and would like to have paper copies please write, call, or e-mail Jean Doddís assistant: Karen Stalk at Hemopet.

The survey closes September 15. The results will be posted on the Havanese Club of America web site for all to see.

Thank you so much for your time and cooperation in this important project.

President, HCA
