    Default Cure for what?

    Hello All,
    If you wanted a Pharmeceutical company to work on a cure or treatment for your four legged friend. (Your wish list) What would it be? I am interested in the responses.
    Thank you in advance...

    ditto cancer... almost everything else is either rare or can be somehow fixed or managed or minimized.

    Cancer was the first thing that came to my mind- obviously what came to everyones mind too...
    C is taking way too many of our cherished dogs..... and way too early.

    Old age. They don't live near long enough.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    My second choice would be a cure for EIC or CNM so we can rid our breed of this defective gene

    With limited funds and time, research probably isn't going to be devoted to finding a cure or treatment for conditions when we can now avoid producing affecteds by using simple DNA testing and prudent breeding, as well as these two conditions only affecting specific breeds and a very limited population. There are a host of things that plague our dogs but most can be managed, treated, repaired or are, as in humans, not common enough to make it financially reasonable to research a cure/treatment. Cancer kills, it isn't limited to any particular breed or species and is far too common.
