Bella & Caia VCS Heart Testing Booked

July 29, 2018

We have both the girls booked in on the 23rd August for the Veterinary Cardiovascular Society Heart test.  We heart test all of our breeding stock as recommended by the Kennel Club and as we plan to breed both girls next season best to get this booked in early as appointments are limited.


Mitral Valve Disease is a common health problem in older dogs of all breeds although it has been found to have an earlier onset in the Cavalier. The disease causes a degeneration of the heart’s mitral valve often picked up as a heart murmur in younger dogs. Many dogs diagnosed with Mitral Valve Disease continue to live to a good age and enjoy a happy life. For Cavaliers, current guidelines recommend a check up for Mitral Valve Disease on an annual basis with a Veterinary Cardiologist.


A 2014 petition asked the Kennel Club to make heart testing mandatory. Unfortunately the issue of mandatory health testing for complex disorders is not straightforward. To read more about the Kennel Club's position on this issue visit the Kennel Club website.
