We send our warmest congratulations to our CHS colleagues on the award of these fellowships that reflect the professionalism, expertise and excellence of their work. Our scrutineers do invaluable work in helping to breed healthier dogs and improve the health of breeds susceptible to life-limiting conditions. We are proud to have these FRCVS scrutineers as part of our CHS team.
