Notes regarding Cystinuria status

Where we are informed that a dog is Cystinuria Clear by virtue of its parentage, the column where the test date would normally appear will show "Not tested" and the result as "Parents Clear". However, the database administrators will NOT have verified the information (placing your mouse over the "Not tested" will show the data source) and the responsibility to verify rests entirely with the viewer.

Searching the database

There is a function below allowing a search of the database with results for an individual dog or breeder affix. At present the database has less than 500 dogs but we are in the process of entering data from historical records and that number will rise rapidly - check again later if the dog you are looking for is not currently listed.

Reliability of data

It is intended that the data presented can be regarded as

  • authoritative where entries have been made on production of documentary evidence of the tests
  • reliable where entries have been made from Kennel Club Breed Records Supplements
  • reliable but unverified where some early Heart Test results are recorded from documents received from the British Veterinary Cardiovascular Society (or directly from the owners) which documents did not have provision for the veterinary surgeon's signature. They are listed as "Unverified Breeder/Owner submitted document".
  • indicative where unverified entries (Cystinuria specifically) have been made based on information provided by breeder/owners.


  • Placing your mouse over a dogs name will show more information, if known, such as their pet name, registration number, KC Stud Book number and microchip number
  • Place your mouse over the "Date:" in the results fields to display the source of the data
