Everybody must work together to reduce the incidence of Polymyositis and the other immune mediated diseases to which our breed is prone. Please get in touch - in confidence of course - if any of the pups that you breed are unlucky enough to be affected by such illnesses. It is very important to monitor health problems in the breed.

Also we ask breeders to please include some information about Polymyositis in new owner puppy packs.

The following leaflet is unalarming in content and has been written to describe the signs to look out for.
