UK Border Collie & Working Sheepdog Fitting Database
About this site
This site is on behalf of the Pastoral Breeds Health Foundation (PBHF) to record UK bred and/or UK resident Border Collies & Working Sheepdogs who have fitted, whether or not a full and exhaustive veterinary diagnosis has taken place. Further
scientific investigation is ongoing for this condition.
It would be a great help, to the ongoing epilepsy research project, if you are able to send DNA samples from your dog(s) whether or not you send details for inclusion in this list. Contact Hilary Kerr (PBHF Secretary) in confidence for your swabs. Click here to email Hilary

The aim of this database is to allow the submission of information on Border Collies & Working Sheepdogs - past and present - who have fitted. Information received via our Submission Form will, once verified, be published at the earliest opportunity.
Also to provide links to other useful sources of information which may help those dogs affected by fits.

Links to similar databases will be published here as we receive them.
