The Morris Animal Foundation is looking for 3000 golden retrievers under 2 years old in and in good health and have a 3 generation pedigree to participate in a study on identifying risk factors for cancer and other diseases in the breed.  Things like environment and nutrition will be tracked for the lifetime of the dog, as well as overall health.

If you live in the United States, and you and your veterinarian are willing to commit to this for the next 10 to 14 years, the research could seriously benefit not only the breed, but the whole veterinary medicine field.

Visit the Morris Animal Foundation site for more information.

“This study requires a long-term commitment from dog owners and their veterinarians,” says study director Michael Guy, DVM, MS, Ph.D. “We have the potential to learn valuable information that will not only improve canine health but will also significantly advance the entire field of veterinary medicine.”
