If you prefer to use your own vet and are prepared to share your dog's results with us (use our Consent Form), the Breed Council will pay for the scoring of your X-rays. We can then make this information available along with all the CVS results.
All the information on the Nordic countries' X-ray screening protocols is in the public domain and has been for several years. Any Dachshund owner is welcome to ask their own vet to take the X-rays and send these to one of the Nordic experts for scoring.
The benefits of participating in the Breed Council's screening programme, using one of our CVS vet partners, are as follows:
Dachshund Health UK (registered charity) also offers occasional subsidies (currently £100 per test) and anyone using their own vet is also eligible to have these as well.
