New in Fit2Breed

From January 2023, all new polymyositis tests will give a specified result stating: homozygous wildtype, homozygous mutant or heterozygous. From the next update, this result will also be visible on the Summary page of the dog in Fit2breed. For an explanation of this result, please refer to the detailed description on the page Frequently asked questions.

For breeders, an urgent procedure has been made for the polymyositis test. This is a test in which, after taking the swab, the breeder receives the result within 2 weeks. This way, the breeder can take this into account when considering keeping a breeding animal. See the FAQ for more explanation.
