Welcome to the Poodle Health Registry!
The nonprofit PHR is a permanent international open registry for all diseases affecting Poodles, living and dead, of all varieties everywhere in the world. Whether you are a puppy buyer looking for a new Poodle to join your family or a breeder searching for a good match, the PHR will help you make an informed decision.
A healthy Poodle should be a highly intelligent, athletic, and exceedingly good-tempered companion, who excels at any activity it attempts, whether conformation, agility, obedience, field trials, tracking, therapy work, search and rescue, herding, or work as a service dog. As with any breed, there are health problems seen in Poodles of each variety. Some of the diseases seen in Poodles are genetic in origin; some may have a genetic predisposition but may also be influenced by environmental factors; and for others, the cause is currently unknown.
In order to register a dog with the Poodle Health Registry, the diagnosis must be documented by a veterinarian.
The intention of the PHR is to provide these services at no charge to the registrant or to anyone accessing the database. The Poodle Health Registry will depend on donations and fund-raisers to pay the overhead and incidental expenses necessary to the operation of such an organization.
