Canine Health Schemes Online Submissions

BVA Canine Health Schemes

Welcome to the online submissions portal for the Canine Health Schemes (CHS). Here you will be able to submit dogs for scoring or grading under both the Hip and Elbow Dysplasia Schemes.

Website update:

In order to resume online submissions, we have made some temporary changes to the way we collect some of the submission details. The dog ‘look up’ function that is linked to The Kennel Club system has been temporarily removed so these details now need to be entered manually. Please ensure that all details are complete and correct before making your submission as any information that needs to be edited will delay the processing of your radiographs.

Please note that this is an interim measure while we continue to investigate the technical issue affecting the interface between the CHS and The Kennel Club systems. We are working to resolve this as soon as possible. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Coronavirus update:

In line with the easing of lockdown restrictions across the UK, BVA are advising that veterinary practices can begin transitioning towards as full a range of veterinary services as possible in a safe manner. This will be dependent on individual practice factors such as staffing levels, as well as the vets’ professional and clinical judgement, and we would urge all owners to respect their vet’s decision. 

CHS are now able to accept and process hip and elbow dysplasia submissions and will be holding weekly scoring and grading sessions from Wednesday 8 July.

We are aware that not all practices will be able to offer this service straight away due to factors such as staffing levels and social distancing, so we’re urging all owners and breeders to respect their vet’s clinical and professional judgement and be patient during this time.
