The Scottish Terrier is the result of many generations of careful breeding, not only for superior conformation, but also for correct temperament and good health. Vaccines and antibiotics have eliminated most of the health problems that faced early breeders. Today we have a more complex task - to understand and eliminate genetic disorders from our beloved breed. To that end, the Scottish Terrier Club of America has established a Health Trust.
The funds from this Trust will be used for many purposes including:
- to identify health problems and establish priorities for solving them
- to make the latest research results accessible to breeders
- to encourage and support research on health problems affecting Scottish Terriers
Everyone who loves a Scottish Terrier will benefit from the projects supported by Trust funds. We are encouraging each person who loves a Scottish Terrier to support this Trust with a small donation.
