Study Participation Opportunity for Dogs with Late Onset Laryngeal Paralysis

 

The Genetics Service is looking for two groups of dogs:

  1. PUREBRED Labrador Retrievers 12.5 years old or older with no history of laryngeal paralysis.
  2. Any breed of dog 8 years old or older that are affected with late onset laryngeal paralysis.

 

Potential study participants include those being evaluated at UW Veterinary care, live in the local area, or could travel to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Medical history and a DNA sample will be collected. Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination through the Genetics Service at UW Veterinary Care, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Expansion to other breeds is expected in the future.

For more information please visit the website or email us.

This study is looking at genetic predisposition to late onset laryngeal paralysis in Labrador Retrievers using genomic sequencing. This study is supported by the NIH.  

 

Cruciate Rupture Genetic Study Participation Opportunity

 

The Genetics Service is looking for two groups of dogs:

  1. PUREBRED Newfoundlands (5 years or older) AND Rottweilers (8 years old or older) with no history of cruciate rupture.
  2. PUREBRED Newfoundlands AND Rottweilers of any age that are affected with non-contact cranial cruciate rupture.

 

Potential study participants include those being evaluated at UW Veterinary care, live in the local area, or could otherwise travel to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Medical history and a DNA sample will be collected. Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination.


The Comparative Genetics and Orthopaedics Laboratory is now undertaking genomic prediction testing for cruciate rupture in purebred Labradors. If you are interested in testing your dog, please contact us via email (genetics@vetmed.wisc.edu)

Osteosarcoma Genetic Study Participation Opportunity

 

The Genetics Service is looking for two groups of dogs:

  1. PUREBRED Irish Wolfhounds (10 years or older) with no history of osteosarcoma.
  2. PUREBRED Irish Wolfhounds diagnosed with osteosarcoma at 5 years or younger.

 

Potential study participants include those being evaluated at UW Veterinary care, live in the local area, or could otherwise travel to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Medical history and a DNA sample will be collected. Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination.

The purpose of this study is to identify a genetic mutation associated with osteosarcoma in dogs and use this information to develop a means to predict risk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fibrotic Myopathy Genetic Study Participation Opportunity

 

The Genetics Service is looking for two groups of dogs:

  1. PUREBRED German Shepherds (9 years or older) with no history of Fibrotic Myopathy. 
  2. PUREBRED German Shepherds at age that are affected with Fibrotic Myopathy.

 

Potential study participants include those being evaluated at UW Veterinary care, live in the local area, or could otherwise travel to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Medical history and a DNA sample will be collected. Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination.
