When each of my pups gp to their new homes, they take with them a booklet that I have written about feeding, training, grooming and for the past 10 years has including an important note about not allowing any drugs containing Ivomectin to be used on the pup. There is also a warning about Rimadyl. :-\
I don’t know of anyone in the UK who tests their dogs for this gene. It is assumed within the breed, that all dogs are sensitive.
