The purpose of this website is mostly to describe the Immune Mediated Health issues to which the Vizsla is predisposed.

Sadly the breed has other very serious health problems too – especially some cancers (Haemangiosarcoma and Lymphoma) and Epilepsy. Breeders should make it their priority to actively investigate the health issues that their stock is producing – and mitigate where possible

For VIP avoid breeding from the first degree relatives

For other complex inheritable diseases¬† – for which there is no test-(including epilepsy and immune mediated conditions) the Kennel Club also advocates great caution in the matter of breeding from unaffected dogs that have produced a disease or have affected siblings or parents¬† –read more – ¬† KC Advice

Kennel Club Assured Breeder and Hungarian Vizsla Club Approved Breeder status requires Hip Scoring and Gonioscopy before mating. We recommend that prospective puppy buyers do a great deal of research before purchase. Please think carefully if the parents are not health tested and GRILL your prospective breeder about the other significant health problems that cannot be tested for
