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 ATCA with the information can be an invaluable source of information.
The OFA offers breed surveys for a number of breed parent clubs. These surveys are offered free of charge. All data is used only in aggregate and is kept confidential. No survey results will be traceable to any individual dog. It is hoped that this information will be valuable to breed clubs as they assess the health issues of their breed.
Take the survey on the OFA website: https://www.ofa.org/about/educational-resources/health-surveys
How long our dogs live and for what reason they passed is important information. As hard as it may be for you to complete the survey, we need the information to maintain records of the health and longevity of our breed.
