Healthy Terriers, Spaniels and Poodles for Activity Level Study
Researchers at North Carolina State University are performing a study to compare the daily activity levels of healthy dogs against the activity of dogs with heart disease.
Dogs that match the study needs will get free health screening to include a physical examination, blood work (CBC/Chemistry panel/Thyroid test/Urinalysis) and chest x-rays. Your dog will wear a small activity monitor on their collar for about 15 days and you will be asked to complete some short questionnaires.
The value of the free services is about $300 and you will help finish this study. Also you will get a print out of your dog’s activity and find out what he/she does when you are not around.
This table shows what dogs are needed:
Specific breeds other than the ones listed above may be eligible depending on size.
