Australian Great Dane Health & Lifestyle Survey 2015

We have received the following from Trish Neill of the Great Dane Lovers Association of Western Australia about a health and lifestyle survey she has carried out and published in July 2015.

“We conducted a broad spectrum health & lifestyle prevalence survey on 1,165 pure bred Great Danes in Australia. The population has already contributed to a number of clinical studies including one being carried out in the UK on Osteosarcoma. I am very excited that we now have the opportunity to contribute to some breed specific projects in Australia around key issues. As these commence we will be sharing more information. It is early days as we have only just met with the key scientist”.

It looks like a great deal of hard work has gone into producing it and our thanks must go to Trish for giving us access to her report which is available for download from
