Subsidised KC/BVA Eye Screening
The Dachshund Club will be hosting a clinical eye screening session at their Championship Show on 16th November at the KC Building, Stoneleigh. Dr Peter Bedford is the panel eye specialist who will be carrying out the screening.
Our charity, Dachshund Health UK, has agreed to offer subsidies to Dachshund owners so the cost of this test will be just £20. The session will be open to other breeds at a cost of £42 per dog.

Examination under the Eye Scheme is not restricted to the identification of inherited eye disease, but also includes general assessment of the health of the eye and adnexa (eyelids, tear ducts and other parts around the eye ball).
