Idiopathic Epilepsy Research
After the first request for people to contact me re the new Idiopathic Epilepsy Research – in the first 48hrs it looked as if it was going to be a good response, but sadly only 14 people have come forward to date.
If you are living with a Vizsla with Epilepsy I beg you to get in contact with me – it is an illness that can cause misery for so many of our breed and I know there are many more out there.
There is no stress to your dog – its a cheek swab that is delivered in the post to you, for you to do in your home: very simple and instructions come with it. The Research co-ordinator will then make contact with you to ask a few questions and gives you a chance to ask some as well. If you have already contacted the Vizsla Health pages saying your Vizsla is epileptic, we will need you to contact me this time as it entails research and therefore different questions are asked, so if you are one of those owners please, please get in contact – this is such important work for the breed.
No one is to blame at producing an Epileptic pup as we as yet have no test and so this is what we are hoping for – that a DNA test may be developed eventually so breeders can test their breeding stock before they go ahead and mate their dogs.
Although the Research starts in the New Year, we need names now that can be sent to the Coordinator, so they can contact everyone and be ready to hit the road running at the start date.
I do hope you will contact me: email@example.com

Have just heard this morning that the new research into Idiopathic Epilepsy is going to start probably in the new year. If your smooth haired Vizsla has Idiopathic Epilepsy and you are interested in being part of this exciting research to try and find the Gene/Genes responsible and hopefully then to eventually develop a DNA test – please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can collate the info on those who are interested in helping the breed by taking part. Not everyone may be suitable -but only the research scientists can make that judgement.
Thank you in advance of your help.

Kennel Club Breed Health and Conservation Plan (BHCP) for the Hungarian Vizsla
This is a project run by The Kennel Club that gathers all available health information and data about each specific breed and compiles it into a single document. This document is given to the breed clubs and is used as a basis to collaboratively create a strategy to tackle the health priorities of that particular breed. The breed health and conservation plans ensure that all health concerns are identified through evidence-based criteria. The plans provide breeders with useful information and resources to support them in making balanced breeding decisions that make health a priority:
