    I took 3 labs to Madison yesterday. Great experience and received results on tests and xrays. They are looking for more dogs. Also labs and rottweilers for the cruciate study.

    We were back in Madison this week for a follow up of my dogs in the study. They are making great progress but are in need of more labs and rottweillers. Please join the study.

    My almost 12 yr old girl was just diagnosed with LP. Are they doing any studies in the New Orleans area. I would gladly take part in the study if close by.

    I believe they will send you a package with swabs and info. The email is [email protected] and genetic lab's phone number is 608-265-5828.

    thanks, I just sent an email to them. I really know nothing about this and my girl was just diagnosed a week ago.

    They took DNA swabs from me. I was in New Mexico at the time. Had a definitive diagnosis. They never physically saw my dog.

    Is there any treatment to help slow this down.

    I think it may be off label, but gabapentin was prescribed for my dog. It seems to help and, even though he's pretty bad, I haven't felt like I had to have the tie back surgery done. Multiple dogs are being treated this way in my neck of the woods.

    My lab’s hind quarters are so weak that they give out on him at times. He is quite hoarse when he barks also. Hate to see him like this and his declining mobility.
