Eye Testing – Reminder

Clumber Spaniel Eye Testing Clinic 2023
Sunday 1st October from 10.00am at Bearley Village Hall

The Clumber Spaniel Club will be holding its annual Eye Testing clinic in conjunction with its Championship Show on Sunday 1st October. Testing will be carried out by Emma Hayton-Lee of the Eye Veterinary Clinic, Leominster and member of the BVA Eye Panel. A full list of the fees is set out on the booking form. This clinic is open to all breeds but in the event of a high number of bookings, Clumber Spaniels will be given priority.
The Club recommends that all Clumber Spaniels being bred from should hold a current eye certificate. It also recommends that all other dogs should be tested at regular intervals to monitor eye health; this is recommended to be at 2, 5 and 8 years of age.
The Club will subsidise the cost for all Clumber Spaniels tested on the day whether or not they are owned by a Club member and the fees on the booking form include the subsidy. By accepting this subsidy owners agree that the Club may publish the results on its website, and use those results to build evidence about eye health in the breed. The Club also offers free tests for Clumbers over 8 years old.
For those unable to attend this session the Clumber Spaniel Club will refund £10 for each dog tested and owned by an existing member and £5 for each dog tested and owned by a non-member. To claim this subsidy, owners must send a copy of the eye test certificate to the Breed Health Coordinator and must be willing for the Club to publish the results, and to use those results to build evidence about eye health in the breed.
Please note: Dogs must have a functioning micro-chip and the dog’s KC Registration Certificate must be presented at the time of the test for the vet to stamp to confirm the test has been carried out. Each dog will be allocated a specific time to arrive so that paperwork can be completed and drops can be administered approximately 20 minutes before the appointment for examination by the vet. The drops are designed to dilate the pupil to aid the examination of the back of the inner eye.
The venue is:
Bearley Village Hall, Snitterfield Road, Bearley, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 0SR
Please note payment must be made in advance and completed booking forms and fees should be sent to:
Carol Page Micklemess, 20, Swanwick Lane, Swanwick, Southampton SO31 7HF
Further information about the arrangements for the test, and for details about payments by PayPal please contact Carol Page on 01489 589734 or email

Well done to Pam Sheppard (proud father!) and Roxie.

From Pam “5 years ago my memories shows me ditching WKC and training Roxies weaves in the park instead….Today we’re at WKC and ran our first Champ classes!

On the Agility Round my lil lady did well…not feeling confident but still doing everything asked of her she pulled out a clear run 😍

…and shes the first Clumber Spaniel to run in Agility Champ….ever!!”

There is a video of Roxie in action, I’ll try and get a link to it sorted when Pam’s back from WKC.
