Inherited Cataract Study January 2021 Report

Current Size: 100%

The Foundation Board is pleased to share with you a full report from Dr. Aguirre’s team that presents a synopsis of the research in 2020.    

A shout out from Dr. Aguirre and the team for the wonderful support from the breeders in sending in DNA and updating eye exams.  And kudos to the Indiana Cocker specialties clinic from which 50 new DNA and new/updated eye exams were gathered for study consideration.  As Dr. Aguirre has said- we are setting the bar for other breed clubs.   As well, you are reminded to continue to send in DNA samples and updated eye exams on dogs already in the study – whether clear or not.  There is a NEW form – the only difference is the contact information – and you will find that form here as well.       

 In closing, a reminder that In January a contract extension was completed for 18 months which will take the research into 2022.  Fundraising need continues.   Thanks for your continued support in all things Eye Support related - DNA, updates, and financial contributions.  Keep them coming!
