The Dachshund Breed Council has launched an IVDD and Lifestyle Survey

About_this_surveyThis survey is to help find out if any lifestyle influences contribute to IVDD (Back Disease) in Dachshunds. This is being used to support the research we are doing in conjunction with the Royal Veterinary College.  We are grateful to Dr. Rowena Packer and her colleagues from the RVC for her help in developing this survey.This survey is primarily for UK-based Dachshund owners, but responses from owners outside the UK will be accepted, particularly if your dog was bred in the UK.

If you have more than one dog please complete a separate survey for each dog.

Questions cover:
– Details of your Dachshund (live dogs only)
– Any history of, or treatment for, IVDD (Back Disease)
– How your Dachshund spends its day
– Exercise
– Diet
– Any other health issues

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR DOG’S WEIGHT (in kg) AND HAVE A TAPE MEASURE TO TELL US HOW LONG AND TALL HE/SHE IS BEFORE YOU START THE SURVEY.

All responses will be treated as confidential and all results will be presented anonymously.  No owners or dogs will be identifiable from the reports produced.

The survey is for live dogs only.  If you wish to report details of a dog that has sadly died, please use the form at http://www.dachshundhealth.org.uk

The first reports and analyses of this survey should be published in June 2015.  They will be available at www.dachshundhealth.org.uk and notified in the Breed Council’s Newsletter and website www.dachshundbreedcouncil.org.uk

If you have any questions about this survey please e-mail: survey2015@dachshundhealth.org.uk
