Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
Whether your dog is healthy or affected by a disease, the amount of information available on canine health can be overwhelming. We want to help you make sense of it all with factual disease descriptions, genetic test information, breed specific health concerns and more. The information provided here is no substitute for the care of a veterinarian. Make sure your dog is getting regular check-ups, and your vet should always be your first call in the event of an emergency.
View our growing list of canine disease descriptions that include prevention, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
Genetic tests are important tools to help prevent diseases. We have assembled a list of available genetic tests and other genetic test resources that are helpful to both breeders and pet owners.
We have assembled resources for dog owners to find additional canine health information on the web. The lists include breed parent clubs, parent club health foundations, veterinary specialist organizations and other canine health resources.
