Lifetime Genetic Health Tracking:
As the largest veterinary health tracking registry in the world, the American Canine Association encourages all professional breeders to have their breeding colonies certified free of congenital defects by licensed veterinarians. Eliminating many common genetic disorders not only improves the health of the canine populations, but also the industry itself.
ACA´s blue ribbon panel of nationally recognized veterinary medicine doctors serves as the advisory board for implementing health tracking policies, identifying procedures for addressing health problems, and advising the ACA on canine health and behavior issues.
If you wish to have your dog and breeding colonies certified free of congenital defects, download our Health Certification Form. Please be advised that this form should be completed and signed by a licensed veterinarian.
