As a community, most purebreed dog clubs are committed to identifying the health challenges for their breed and supporting the research to address those challenges.
The AKC Canine Health Foundation is working hard to provide funding for promising research. As should we all!
I came across this article late last week, and having known dogs of several breeds that suffer(ed) from seizures, I am thrilled to see that there may be some progress.
Clinical trials are always a little scary, so is giving a medication to your dog, or a human family member, when that medication has seen limited testing.
I applaud those dog owners who are willing to test this new protocol – through their courage, there can be more hope for the dogs who follow.
And eventually people will benefit, too.
