    Well its been a year since the catastrophe of breeding last year, and I now have a very beautiful girl who is just 1 and I'm trying to remember all the things I should have sorted out before breeding from her. Stud chosen (depending on blood grouping) but I know there are some health tests that I was planning on having done and I now can't remember what they are, have tried searching the forum but can't seem to find what I am looking for. I can see from other sites some breeders test for PKD and other initials I can't remember - please can someone fill me in on everything I have forgotten! I want to make sure all tests and done and everything is checked properly before we start!

    Also vaccinations - vets seem to offer different types near me and they all seem to incloude different diseases - what do you make sure is included?

    Thanks everyone - my brain really is like a sieve at times, hours of research disappeared within a year!

    She is not JUST a pet :D Being a loved pet comes first. If our pets are bred or shown, that is very much of secondary importance ;) I have never seen a LH BSH. Any pics to share?

    She looks fantastic :D And very well groomed :thumbup1:

    I now recall seeing a photo of a LH BSH black silver tabby in one of my books. The breeder of my tabby girl had a couple in one of her litters once. I guess it is because when they were trying to restore BSH breed lines after WW2, when the BSH breed very nearly died out, Persians were used in the breeding stock. As such there must be a few LH genes around.

    I had a LH Varient in a litter of kittens last year, she was very showy with a really laid back attitude compared to her siblings.

    i dont breed so i am not to sure what tests are needed for the BSH, i know the blood group has to be right, as there was a thread about it not so long ago, but as for health checks i really dont know, hopefully a breeder of BSH will be able to advise you.:)

    Hi, i got my cats blood tested, pkd tested and a SNAP FIV/FeLV Combo Test ... ideal both queen and stud should be tested for these.. some stud owners wont accept your queen unless you have an up to date SNAP FIV/FeLV (minimum 48 hrs before mating) some are more flexible.
    obviously the basics as well dont forget ur vax records and flea n wormers up to date :)
