Bulldog CERF Statistics October 10, 2008
For those not convinced that there might be eye troubles in this breed. Please consider the following information.
This information was taken from the OFA search records from the 74 Bulldogs CERF examined and listed in the OFA database.
54 were listed as normal.
20 had Breeder Option Codes on the certificates as follows:
6 were older listings that listed simply eyelid and could be any of the following:
7 Eyelid Distichiasis
3 Eyelid Entropion
1 Fundus Retinal Dysplasia/Folds
2 Fundus: (not specified could be any of the following)
1 Lens-Punctate Cataract
27% of the Bulldogs CERFd have some abnormality of the eye (makes one wonder what the % of the rest of the Bulldog population would be especially now that the Bulldog is ranked #10 it can only get worse). At least on these few Bulldogs it is listed in black and white what the abnormality is by a board certified ophthalmologist so that better breeding decisions can be made since the most basic breeding advice is to not double up on a fault.
