We are currently agreeing prices but any member interested should contact Maryann Hogan on 01462 670774 to book an appointment.


The Society has published a Guide to breeding and a Guide to health testing, click on the links at the bottom of this page to download a copy. From time to time the Society arranges Health days where members dogs can be tested and also arranges reduced cost health tests such as DNA for eyes and MRI's, details will appear on this page.

Heart Testing - Members of Eastern Counties CKCS Society can have their dogs hearts tested at our health day and occassionally at our shows during the year. We offer subsidised cardiologist tests at no charge for members dogs. Non members will pay £10. Contact Secretary for bookings.

KC/VCS/CKCS Heart Scheme - launched in May 2018 the scheme aims to reduce the prevalence of Mitral Valve Disease (MVD), is set to trial 100 dogs over the coming months before it rolls out to all Cavalier breeders and owners later in the year. FAQ's and Breeding Guidelines drawn up for the scheme can be viewed here.

Eye Testing - Members of Eastern Counties CKCS Society can have their dogs eyes tested at our health day under the KC/BVA scheme. Contact Secretary for bookings.

Dry Eye/Curly Coat and Episodic falling - Unfortunately the Animal Health Trust has closed and is no longer providing testing facilities. Until such times as a new centre is established our best advice is to check the Kennel Club web site Health pages for advice.

Syringomyelia - Currently we do not have any local centres offering low cost MRI scans so please contact our health representative Peter Towse on 01525 237563 to find out the latest information.
