Default Calling owners of labs with severe HD - your breed needs YOU

As you know, in my quest to research as extensively as I can in this area, I have come across a study in the States, where they are undertaking research into Labs and GSD's with severe HD - and need blood samples from labs (and GSD's) with the condition.

I have been in touch with the study organiser, and they are still seeking samples - so if you can help - please please do - link below for further information.

(Mods - any chance of making this a sticky?)

I am at my vets on Tuesday with my mums dog, so will print it off and ask if they could get a sample from Keira.

When Keira was diagnosed, she had bloods sent off for genetic tests in the UK.

Hopefully all the tests will help

Sadly can't help as Rocky is a GR, but do hope these tests help them find out more of the info that is needed on HD.

I'm meeting a friend tomorrow who is going to Buckley House (Charlie's specialist) so will call in and see if they can take a sample from Charlie. If not then I'll speak to my own vet

Thank you ladies for your positive responses - Di and a few others have experience of sending blood to the States - and I am pretty sure it was delivery within two days - hopefully someone will see this and be able to shed some light.
