A DNA test is available to establish the PRCD-1 PRA status for Finnish Lapphunds
A number of health results not covered by the KC records have been made available in the public domain, either direct to the breed clubs or reported via social media, these are listed and can be searched by condition or dog
Finnish Lapphund UK Health survey
To enable us to monitor the health of the breed in the UK we ask that owners of UK owners complete a health survey for each dog owned by them, and hope that breeders will share the link to any puppy owners who may not be members of the breed clubs – the results will be collated by the Breed Health Coordinator and a report compiled and shared on this site.
