Canine Health Clinics
Helping to underwrite canine health clinics throughout the year is one of the most important things we do. It gives the opportunity for Cairn owners to have their dogs checked by a professional specializing in the field at a low cost, and it also helps breeders to screen litters to make sure they are not passing on, unwittingly, unwanted abnormalities.
Eligibility for Canine Health Clinics
Eligible Dogs: All dogs are eligible for testing at these clinics. However, host clubs may impose an order of acceptance, i.e., members’ dogs, non-members’ Cairns, then all other dogs belonging to non-members.
Eligible Clubs: Regional clubs under the CTCA. All-breed clubs are not eligible.
The host club will be reimbursed at a rate of $25 per dog, with 16 dogs being the maximum or $400.
The eye clinics must be performed by a Board Certified Ophthalmologist, and the ultrasounds must be performed by a Board Certified Radiologist.
The overall results of the clinics are sent to the Foundation of the CTCA, which, in turn, will share results with the appropriate researchers.
The reimbursement form must be received no later than 6 months after the date of the clinic and prior to September 30th.
