DCM Research – Update

Attached is a message and details from University of Liverpool DCM Project calling for volunteers 4 years or older to be scanned for DCM.  If you wish for your Great Dane to take part in this project please be prepared to contribute £50.00 towards the costs and contact Joan Toohey on 0151 795 6129 (Mon – Fri 8am – 2pm) for further information or to book an appointment.

DCM Research

liverpool_logo

Volunteers are still needed for our research into dilated cardiomyopathy in Great Danes at The University of Liverpool.

We are screening from 4 years – so if you have a Dane 4 years or older WE NEED YOU!!

A contribution of £50 towards all tests is required by the owner on the first visit.

We are also sending out Holter monitors to be fitted to some dogs 1 year or older. This is an EGC monitor (not the same as a heart scan). This will provide us with much needed information about arrhythmias (palpitations) in Danes.

This Project has the support of your Breed Council and Breed Clubs.

For further information or to book an appointment contact:

Joan Toohey on 0151 795 6129 (08:00 to 14:00 Mon – Fri).

Vaccination Guidelines – Update

The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) regularly publishes guidelines for the vaccination of Dogs and Cats. Their website can be found at http://www.wsava.org/guidelines/vaccination-guidelines and it also contains a wealth of information on kidney, liver and hereditary diseases.
