y Coton was registered as breedable by ACC in 2001. Do I have to get additional OFA testing on him?
No, you do not. Cotons issued ACC breedable pedigrees prior to August 12, 2008 have been “grandfathered in”. While you do need to keep up with the CERF requirements, your Coton will not be required to have the additional two health tests, unless you make a request for a Blue Ribbon Litter award. However, we encourage you to have this basic level of testing done anyway, as we would like all Cotons registered with an ACC breedable pedigree to have the same basic health testing as every other Coton with a breedable pedigree issued by ACC.
