HEALTH TESTS

Hearts

*Since 1999 testing for HCM! By Echocardiogram by Feline Heart Specialist with Color Doppler Equipment. 

Cats with poor testing history will be tested 3 x up to age 6 (females) and 2 x up to age 5 (males). Cats with good testing history will only be tested once. 


*Since 2007 testing with Gene Test for the Meurs Mutation. Note that the gene test for HCM is insufficient.

Hips:

*Since 1999 testing for HD!  Over 60 OFA tests have been performed (Preliminary or Certified) 

Kidneys:

*Since 2000 testing for PKD by Color Doppler Echocardiogram. 


Since 2007 testing with Gene Test for PKD. Note that the gene test for PKD is insufficient.

Optimal Selection Gene Tests to follow for all our cats!

Documents for ancestry testing for each kitten from my Cattery will be provided.  

There are two links below. The link on the left shows relatively recent test results. The link on the right is from one of my VERY OLD, ARCHIVED, completely outdated websites. Scroll down on that link to see HCM/PKD and HD results (note: we don’t feed RC anymore! LOL)
