DNA Samples Needed from Rottweilers for Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis Study
Dr. Kathryn Meurs and Dr. Joshua Stern from Washington State University are currently looking for DNA samples from Rottweilers with a diagnosis of Subvalvular aortic stenosis (diagnosed by Doppler echocardiogram) or proven clear of Subvalvular aortic stenosis (as cleared by a cardiologist) to advance our study to identify a gene for the disease. To perform the study, they need DNA samples from 20-30 affected dogs and 20-30 clear dogs. To learn more about the study and how you can participate by submitting blood samples, please visit the Familial SAS Study web site or contact the investigators.More Information
