Please note that the first of the SPS/SLEM Test Results intimated to Steve Dean have now been posted on the official Border Terrier Breed Health Group Website

Published Results on DNA Test for SPS/SLEM

The following notice also appears:

Owners who wish to have the results of their Border Terriers entered on the Breed Health Group SLEM Test Results List, should send a copy of the AHT Test Result Certificate and permission for the BHG to publish the result, to our Breed Health Co-ordinator Steve Dean at stevedean@tyrianborder.com

The KC has confirmed that all of the AHT SLEM results so far received by it, are now recorded in its system. They can be found on the records of the individual dogs concerned and are also collectively listed under the headings – Clear, Carrier and Affected.

NB Some tested dogs may not be listed if they have been tested within the last calendar month or if their registration details were not provided to the Animal Health Trust at the time of testing.
