Breed Council Newsletter – May 2010

The May 2010 Newsletter contains details of how you can participate in two research programmes:

  • cord1 (PRA) in Mini Wire Dachshunds
  • Epilepsy

Both programmes are being run by the Animal Health Trust and require cheek swab samples.  The MW cord1 programme is being co-ordinated by Judy Squires of the Miniature Dachshund Club

Kits to provide samples to add to the epilepsy research programme can be obtained directly from the AHT – full details are in the Newsletter.


The epilepsy research referred to here is not Lafora’s testing.  It is Idiopathic Epilepsy research.  They are collecting samples to try to find the gene(s) causing epilepsy.  If you want Lafora’s tests, please contact the Wire Club.
