Clumber Spaniel Club (UK) Advice on the Correct Terminology re Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC)

Anyone buying a Clumber or using one at stud is advised to ensure they know the EIC status of the parents and/or dog/puppy prior to purchase or use.

There are only three official status for the EIC condition CLEAR, CARRIER or AFFECTED. All results can be checked on the Clumber Spaniel Club website or through the use of the Kennel Club Mateselect tool.

To avoid confusion, anyone seeing the term “unaffected” should realise this can mean the dog is untested or a carrier.

The EIC result should be confirmed before deciding to buy or use the Clumber.
