Special Health and Genetics Blood Sample
and Genetics Committee will sponsor a blood
collection clinic for
our breed at the American Water Spaniel
National Specialty on August 2, 3
and 5, 2017.
The purpose is to provide DNA samples along
with corresponding health
information about each dog to the CHIC DNA
Bank to facilitate future
research and testing aimed at reducing the
incidence of inherited diseases
Those who are in the area, members and
non-members, are encouraged to
participate in the clinic. For all others,
blood collection kits are
available for all American Water Spaniel
owners from the Orthopedic
Foundation for Animals. You may take these
kits to your veterinarian to
obtain a blood sample. For more information
and to answer any questions you
might have, Frequently Asked Questions (Chic
DNA Repository) are available
on the link below.
