EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) has been added to the list of CHIC Required Tests!
A CHIC number is issued when test results are entered into the database satisfying each breed specific requirement, and when the owner of the dog has opted to release the results into the public domain. The CHIC number itself does not imply normal test results, only that all the required breed specific tests were performed and the results made publicly available.
Eye Examination by a Boarded ACVO Ophthalmologist (recommend each year until 5, thereafter every 2 years)
EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) – NEW requirement!!!
Multiple Drug Sensitivity
Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD
Once included in the CHIC program, the breed specific requirements are dynamic. As health priorities within a breed change, or as new screening tests become available, the breed specific requirements can be modified to reflect the current environment. If the breed specific requirements are modified, existing CHIC numbers are not revoked. Again, the CHIC number is issued to a dog that completed all required tests at a given point in time.<
