Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
Researchers in the Oncology Research Group at the Animal Health Trust (in collaboration with researchers at other institutes, as part of the LUPA project, http://www.eurolupa.org/) are collecting DNA samples from German Shepherd Dogs. They would like to collect samples (cheek swab, or whole blood sample in EDTA) from dogs that are either currently affected with a hemangiosarcoma, or have previously had a hemangiosarcoma. Anyone who is interested in taking part in these research studies and would be willing to submit a cheek swab, or have their veterinary surgeon retain for research a sample of blood (from their dog) that is surplus that collected for a clinical reason, is invited to contact them for shipping information.More Information
