New Lifetime Golden Retriever Study Shows Promise

September 25, 2013 By: Dr. K Category: Opinion

My friends at Morris Animal Foundation are conducting a lifetime study of Golden Retrievers and need all the online promotion they can get. As many in the veterinary community know, Goldens are highly predisposed to specific cancers: mainly Lymphosarcoma, Hemagiosarcoma, and Osteosarcoma.

MAF states: Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is a groundbreaking effort to learn how to prevent cancer and other diseases. It is the largest and longest observational study ever undertaken to improve the health of dogs. The study will enroll up to 3,000 Golden Retrievers and will last 10 to 14 years.

If you have a golden retriever you would like in the study, please follow the directions in the link above and contact your veterinarian.
