DNA testing for MAC

Post by zeta1454 »

Just to update anyone re the DNA test for MAC in miniature schnauzers that this is now a mandatory requirement for members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme and is recommended by all the schnauzer breed clubs who requested the Kennel Club to have this added to the requirements. It highlights that this is now regarded as essential for good breeders even those who may not be ABS members and something for puppy seekers to be checking with any breeder they contact in their search for a miniature schnauzer puppy.

The link to the updated Kennel Club Assured Breeder health test requirements for all breeds can be found on this link:
