New DNA testing scheme for Irish Setters

Following consultation with the Irish Setter Breed Health Committee, the Kennel Club has recently approved a new official DNA testing scheme for PRA (rcd-4) in the breed.

This test is offered by the Animal Health Trust and further details can be obtained by emailing dnatesting@aht.org.uk.

Copies of all future test certificate results issued by the AHT will be sent directly to the Kennel Club, where the test result will be added to the dog’s details on the registration database. This will trigger the publication of the test result in the next available Breed Records Supplement, and the result will also appear on any new registration certificate issued for the dog and on the registration certificates of any future progeny of the dog.

Owners who have already had their dog(s) DNA tested for this condition can send copies of the test certificate into the Kennel Club and the data will be added to the dog’s registration details. In addition, if the owner includes the original registration certificate for the dog (not a copy) then a new registration certificate will be issued, with the DNA result on it, free of charge. Please send the DNA test certificates to:

The Health & Breeder Services Department
The Kennel Club
1 – 5 Clarges Street
Piccadilly
London
W1J 8AB

Alternatively, copies of DNA test results can be emailed to gary.johnson@thekennelclub.org.uk.

For further information on this new scheme, please contact Professor Jeff Sampson at jeff.sampson@thekennelclub.org.uk.
