Man’s Best Friend at Risk of Cancer
Golden Retrievers are some of the most lovable, caring, and loyal dogs known to man. Unfortunately, this great species is fighting an intense battle. Studies have found that nearly 60% of all Golden Retrievers will develop cancer in their lifetime. The Morris Animal Foundation is doing their part to help stop this, but they need your help. The Morris Animal Foundation is heading a Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. They encourage owners of Golden Retrievers to enroll their dogs in this initiative to help diagnose, treat, and prevent this terrible disease.
Dogs that are eligible for enrollment must be healthy, purebred Golden Retrievers. They need to have a verifiable three-generation pedigree. They must also be younger than two years of age and reside in the contiguous United States.
The study’s success depends on highly committed Golden Retriever owners. Anyone interested in the study must participate in the study for the life of the dog. Complete Online questionnaires regarding your dog’s diet and environment. You must take your dog to its veterinarian for annual examinations and sample collections (blood, urine, feces, hair and toenail clippings). The dog must also be microchipped.
