"Blood, Sweat and Cheers!"
A win-win opportunity for owners of Alaskan Malamute,
Keeshond, Samoyed, and Collie dogs!
Purebred dog owners can contribute to research that will improve diagnostic testing for hypothyroidism. Don't miss your chance to participate! Healthy dogs are needed now!
The AKC Canine Health Foundation, Collie Foundation and OFA have funded a study to determine breed-specific reference intervals for thyroid hormone concentrations in samples from healthy pure-bred dogs. Rebecca Davies, PhD, from the University of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is conducting the study and is currently looking for volunteers.
Scientists and breeders CAN work together to benefit both dogs and science!
