Special Health and Genetics Blood Sample Collection

The Health 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
in dogs.

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.
