Juvenile Laryngeal Paralysis Polyneuropathy – JLPP

Effective from 01 January 2023 – all Rottweilers in Australia must be tested for JLPP prior to being mated and only CLEAR TO CLEAR or CLEAR TO CARRIER is permitted to be bred together. The exception to this is frozen semen whereby a sample can be taken from left over semen at the time the bitch is inseminated and then sent off for testing; in these cases, the bitch must be CLEAR on the off chance the sire may be a carrier. Certificate to be provided by the laboratory carrying out the testing eg: Laboklin, OFA, Orivet. Samples must be taken by a vet or a Certified Collector.
