Recommended Health Testing
The Pug Dog Club of America supports the CHIC registry (Canine Health Information Center)
and recommends all dogs used for breeding and exhibition be screened for health issues.
To that end, the PDCA recommends the following tests:
- Hip Dysplasia
- Luxating Patella
- CERF Eye Examination (every 3 years)
- Pug Dog Encephalitis (PDE) - test for Necrotizing Meningoencephalitis
