Patellar Luxation:

The Health Sub-Committee are gathering information on Flatcoats that have been diagnosed with patellar luxation, including those that have received surgery, with a view to sending to an orthopaedic specialist for their evaluation.  If you have been in the unfortunate position of having your dogs diagnosed with this condition past or present, it would be appreciated if you would send us a 5 generation pedigree, and complete the Health Form downloadable from the  Health Home page  or click here.
