HOW TO SEND TEST RESULTS OF YOUR PRA AFFECTED LHASA APSO TO ILAC:
Email a copy of the official test result and a copy of the pedigree of your Lhasa Apso to info@intlac.org. In the email you must state that you give permission to ILAC to publish the test result and pedigree of your Lhasa Apso. Without proof and written permission to publish by the owner of the dog, ILAC will not publish test results.
The only exception to the above rule is when test results appear in public databases or Health Test Results Finders which are operated by breed clubs or kennel clubs.
 
CONFLICTING RESULTS OF EYE EXAMINATIONS CONDUCTED ON THE SAME DOG:
In the event that the results of two eye examinations of the same dog conflict, ILAC is acting according to ECVO regulations:
The most adverse judgment is valid until the dog is examined by the National Panel or Chief Panellist, whose decision will be final.
In case a dog has first been diagnosed affected but later is diagnosed unaffected by the National Panel or Chief Panellist, please send a copy of the final test result to ILAC at info@intlac.org and the status "affected" will be removed immediately.
