BHCA Health Survey results

In the spring of 2016, the Basset Hound Health Survey Committee launched an online survey of health conditions among Basset Hounds. Its purpose is to identify current health problems in the breed with the goal of shaping medical research priorities for the breed, to provide information to the Health Committee and Board that can be used to shape BHCA's Health Policy, and to inform educational materials for BHCA members and the public at large.

On this page you will find the results of the survey in a series of PDF reports. As each report is completed, it will be added to this page. Click on the report title to download the PDF, which will open in a new window.
