|PWD Health & Litter Database: Become a Health Participation|
|If you currently use the database and do not see a Update Health Information button at the top of the page of your dog's information page, you are a Non Participating User.|
In order to change your status please send an Email to the Security Administrator indicating that you wish to enter Health information.
Please take a moment to read the following to understand what is considered a Health Participant........
Following PWDCA guidelines for health testing does not make you or your dog a participant in the database.
Ratings for your dog may "passively" be provided to and appear in the database in GREEN from open registries such as OFA, CERF/ECR, GM1 and Optigen. This does not, however, make you or your dog an "active" participant in the database.
To be an "active" participant in the database you must enter the health information for your dog even if it is already present from the Open Registries. In making the entries you will see other health areas listed and be able to see if anything other than OFA, CERF/ECR, GM1 and Optigen ratings should be entered about your dog. The health information for your dog will then appear in BLUE.
You even have the opportunity to enter brief comments about your dog's health at the bottom of the Health Update Page.
