The study is being done at the U of Minnesota in collaboration with the U of Sask. They need blood samples from both affected and un-affected dogs in order to locate the gene(s?) responsible. I keep bringing this up because I think EIC is a serious threat to the health of field Labs and, with our cooperation, it looks like a test can be developed for carriers. (Like the breakthru in CNM.)Chris Atkinson said:Keith, Can you please type a brief summary of how folks can do this?
Unfortunately, many folks want the test but don't feel they have the time to go out of their way to participate.
I know I'm heading into the vet for overdue shots and could easily have some blood drawn.
Please help them. If you're in for annual shots, just have your vet draw some blood.
It is easy to participate, just email for the forms: [email protected]
It would be best to include your dog's sire and dam in the email.
Thanks from me and my Labrabuddies.
