PLANNING LITTERS OF DOGS REGISTERED WITH THE ABBSC

PLANNING A LITTER?

1. ARE BOTH SIRE AND DAM REGISTERED WITH THE FCPR?

2. HAVE YOU A QUALIFIED VETERINARIAN FOR REPRODUCTIVE NEEDS?

3. ARE BOTH SIRE AND DAM HEALTHY? ARE THEIR HIPS, ELBOWS, MDR1 AND DM STATUS BEEN DETERMINE AND THAT THE SIRE AND DAM ARE A GOOD MATCH FOR BREEDING? (BBS/WSS HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP AS CEA CARRIERS) IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO THE BREED THAT BBS/WSSD BREEDERS ALSO TEST THEIR BREEDING STOCK FOR THIS DEVASTATING DISEASE)

4. IS THE WHELPING BOX, SUPPLIES READY FOR PUPPIES?

5. DO YOU HAVE THE EMERGENCY VET PHONE NUMBER READY?

6. AFTER THE LITTER IS BORN SUBMIT IN A TIMELY FACHION A LITTER REGISTRATION TO THE FCPR. CLICK ON THE ARROW BUTTON BELOW FOR THE LITTER APPLICATION IN ENGLISH.
