The NSW Southern District Country Border Collie club wishes to sincerely thank the owners of the following web pages for the immense content of information that they contribute in relation to hereditary diseases that affect the Border Collie breed.

We must remind you that these health problems, although found in the Border Collie, are not breed specific or common place within the breed.

In the past decade any occurrence of any of these health problems has been strongly addressed  by the responsible breeders, breed clubs and controlling breed associations.

Our club lists the following information about known hereditary diseases that may affect the Border Collie, so when you speak with a  breeder you are able to address your concerns before purchasing a pup.
