    I was told that you can not mix and match - but if you submit 5 of the same type of test you will get the kennel discount. I inquired about that specifically a few months ago. I would be happy to hear that they have changed their minds on that.

    I'm sorry if I was wrong about that. I was told by a breeder about a year ago that you could. That may have changed.

    I put in an email. I'll report back.

    Here is OFA's response, I stand corrected:

    No you would need five or more of each test; example, 5 PRA or 5 VWD, etc.

    Thank you.

    Mine are PRA clear (bench bred)-

    "Monty," BISS CH Forestwood Gone Hollywood At Montview, RN, JH, WC-

    The 2nd one isn't officially mine yet until he passes OFA hips/elbows and EIC, but he is PRA clear by parentage.

    Edited to add- yep, it's official.
    "Rogue," BISS CH Laurglen Ardent Rogue At Hyspire.

    I just submitted a combination of EIC and PRA by Fax and they took them and had them up within a few days so ?.

    I would really like to know about stud dogs who have been PRA tested. This thread as a sticky would be a nice place to start such a search

    Question about who's more affected by PRA - mostly field labs, or is it showing up in the conformation lines as well? This is the case in goldens, mostly in field lines.

    The reason I ask, is that NORCAL GRC is considering offering a 'clinic' to test for PRA and Pigmentary Uveitis to save costs for the owners by taking advantage of group submissions.

    PU is now a big thing in conformation lines, but I haven't been following the discussions closely enough to know how much it is showing up in field lines.

    If we offered a clinic at our Specialty and the subsequent weekend of shows, few field people would be there, but the conformation lab people and other breeds would be able to take advantage of this service.

    Please let me know what you all are aware of, so I can advise the rest of the NORCAL Board on this matter of how well it would serve the labs as well. The local lab club (GGLRC) also has a Specialty (and a large entry) on this same weekend, Del Valle KC in October.
