With the designation of Pigmentary Uveitis (PU) as a very serious hereditary disorder in Golden Retrievers and the realization that most dogs with this serious condition will not present with the disease until after many are no longer being bred, the newest recommendation is to check dogs annually for life. Additionally, since PU is such a serious and painful disease, we want to encourage everyone with older dogs to get them checked even if they have never been used in a breeding program. Paying for the CERF registration is our way to encourage and support this effort.
The program involves printing out a simple voucher (see link below) to be included with the CERF form you send in for registration in the database. It is understood that all dogs will be included in the public database so the owner must agree to results being published. Lets all work together to help reduce the occurrence of this painful eye disease. For more detailed information on this project, subscribe to GRF Updates. Please share this update with anyone you feel may be interested! To join, simply send a blank email to: email@example.com Click here for CERF Voucher
The Golden Retriever Foundation is very excited to announce that plans have been finalized to pay for CERF registrations for Golden Retrievers 8 years and older to be added to online registries.
