All purebred and mixed breed dogs are prone to hereditary health problems. The Australian Terrier is no exception. The Australian Terrier Club of America encourages its members to be aware of health issues and carry out responsible breeding practices to reduce or eliminate hereditary health problems. If your dog has a health issue, providing us with the information can be an invaluable source of information.
The OFA created the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) by partnering with participating parent clubs to research and maintain information on the health issues prevalent in specific breeds. They established a recommended protocol for breed-specific health screenings. Dogs tested in accordance with that protocol are recognized with a CHIC number and certification.
This ATCA Specialty 2018 Education Day Presentation was sponsored by The Australian Terrier Trust (AusTTrust).
The AusTTrust assists the Australian Terrier Club of America, in supporting our breed through Health and Education.
