    Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen

    Epilepsy is known to occur and the breed club and Animal Health Trust are in co operation to arrange testing to find the mode of inheritance and also if any individual is the responsible gene carrier. Volunteer hounds have a small blood sample taken from them to assist this survey.

    GBGV's have very few eye problems however these conditions are known to oocur:
    PPM (Persistant Pupillary Membranes) This condition should clear by the time the puppy is approx 8 weeks old, if it continues, they are non progressive and it is common for it to disappear later on in the dogs life.

    POAG This condition was discovered in a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen that was imported. The breed club is promoting ongoing surveillanvce scheme and is encouraging all breeders to test their breeding stock for indentification of this condition. POAG is more common in PBGV's than GBGV's.

    Hip score , For a good Hip score The total score should add up to single
    Figure e.g left hip 4 right hip 5 total Score = 9 .

    Elbow Score Pref to be 0/0

    Annual eye test

    Optigen Testing Clear to normal is the best outcome
