CHEDS (Canine Hip and Elbow Dysplasia Scheme)
The AVA and ANKC Ltd jointly established the Canine Hip and Elbow dysplasia scheme in January 2000, and since that time the AVA has been responsible for administering the scheme from its Canberra office.
The AVA has now decided to cease participation in the scheme, and ANKC Ltd will become the sole manager of the scheme once the transfer takes place.
The transition of administrative functions will occur over the next few months and is expected to be completed by the end of April, 2016.
From Monday 2nd of May 2016, all submissions will be sent directly from the Veterinarian taking the x-rays to a member of the ANKC Ltd Radiologists Panel.
Full details of the new procedures and ANKC Ltd Radiologists Panel will be available from ww.ankc.org.au prior to 2 May 2016. [NOTE: The existing Radiologists Panel will continue until 30 April 2016 and full details of the ANKC Ltd Panel will be made available from our website as soon as possible.]
