MSCA $25 EMBARK GENETIC TEST REBATE
The MSCA BOD and the MSCA Health & Genetics Committee is pleased to offer a $25 rebate to the first 25 MSCA members who genetically health test their Maremma Sheepdog with Embark and submit the testing to the BOD.
The MSCA has partnered to establish a genetic database beginning with Embark.
After speaking with several leading geneticists in the veterinary field, and determining there have not been many Maremmas who have been genetically health tested, the MSCA Health and Genetics Committee and MSCA BOD will focus on encouraging DNA health testing among members.
This testing will help establish genetic pedigrees and find additional markers for potential genetic diseases that affect the breed.
The test must be the 'Embark for Breeders' kit.
Embark is offering $60 off your *first order when purchased with the links in this email and with the code: TRYEMBARK99
The Embark for Breeder kit is $159.
With the rebate from the Club and the savings from Embark, the out-of-pocket cost for the test is only $74! Shipping is free!
*Valid for genetic test results given by Embark after 9/15/22. It must be your first time ordering from Embark to receive the $60.00 discount from Embark.
THE MAREMMA SHEEPDOG AND THE OFA CHIC PROGRAM
CHIC, the Canine Health Information Center, is a database of consolidated health screening results. Sponsored by the OFA, CHIC works with parent clubs to identify health screening protocols appropriate for individual breeds. Dogs tested in accordance with the parent club established requirements, that have their results registered and made available in the OFA Online Database are issued CHIC numbers. CHIC is meant to encourage health testing and sharing of all results, normal and abnormal, so that more informed breeding decisions can be made in an overall effort to reduce the incidence of genetic disease and improve canine health. Participation in CHIC is entirely voluntary.
Maremma owners can submit their dog's PennHIP results to the OFA Online Database.
