The Health Certificate Scheme at the moment consists of two elements part 1 and part 2

Part 1 The Bronze Certificate is a Veterinary Assessment which consists of the following:

1: Basic sounding with a stethoscope, this is where the vet listens to your dog's heart.

2: Visual/Auditory Assessment of you dog's breathing, the vet looks to see if your dogs breathing is laboured or shallow and listens to its chest for anything out of the usual.

3: Visual assessment of the Nostrils, Skin, Ear Canals the vet is looking for clean open nostrils, skin which is not inflamed of sore and clean ear canals with no irritation.

4: Basic clinical assessment of the Eyes. Making sure the eyes looks normal with no irritation or inflammation.

5. Establish hearing or not: Self explanitory 

6. Tail, Testes & Temperament: The vet will check for kinks in the tail, male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum. The temeprament should be as described in the Breed Standard. placid, never aggressive or timid. Affectionate

7. General comments: This is for any comment the vet feels to be relevant to the dog/bitch being assessed.

This examination should take approximately 10-15 minutes. If the Vet feels there is a problem that causes discomfort which is detrimental to the health and well-being of the Basset Hound, arrangements may be made for it to be represented at a later date.

A copy of the HEALTH CERTIFICATE FORM should be given or sent to the Basset Hound Breed Health Coordinator, this is for data collection purposes only and is confidential.
Part 2 The Silver/Gold Certificate consists of a Gonioscopy Test, a specialised test carried out by a BVA Eye Panellist.

To quailfy for the Silver Certificate the requirement is:

To have obtained the Bronze Level Certificate:

To have undergone a KC/BVA Gonioscopy Test, irrespective of the result

To qualify for the Gold Certificate the requirement is:

To have obtained the Bronze Level Certificate

To have obtained the Silver Level Certificate

To be KC/BVA Gonioscopy unaffected


It is expected that the Health Certificate Scheme will evolve in time as more health Initiatives are embraced.
The Health Group are keen to promote membership of a Breed Club as it is recognised that breed improvement can only be made with those who remain within reach of, and under the influence of the Breed Clubs and the Kennel Club. It is therefore suggested that all puppy buyers should be encouraged to join a breed club at the time they buy a puppy. To achieve this we suggest breeders should include a years breed club membership in the sale of every puppy.
