SCWT Health Information

An important goal of this database is to collect detailed health and disease information on as many Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers as possible. Collecting, storing and making this health data available can provide significant benefits:

  • Reliable health records benefit breeders choosing mates for their dogs.
  • Owners seeking to add a Wheaten to their family can research pedigrees and health history.
  • The database may help identify health trends.
  • Veterinarians and veterinary researchers will have easy access to abundant data.

Because of the importance and sensitivity of health data, anonymous submissions will not be accepted. Health data will be independently verified whenever possible using veterinary records, pathologists' reports, and certifications from registering bodies such as OFA. Unverified health information will be classified as anecdotal in the individual dog's records.

Growing the Database

To reach its full potential, the database needs breeders and owners to provide data on their dogs so information is kept current. You can help!! Add your dog to the database or update his information:
