|Aussie Epilepsy Research
The Aussie Epilepsy Research study at the University
of Minnesota has been extended to March 2011. Dr. Ned
Patterson is running additional Aussies samples using
more powerful SNP Chips. Blood samples from affected
dogs are still needed. If you have a dog that has been
diagnosed with idiopathic (primary) epilepsy please send
in a blood sample from your dog. Blood samples from dogs
10+ years old that have never had a seizure are also
needed to serve as controls. For information,
instructions and forms to submit a blood sample and/or
for information to make a donation to support the
research, please see below. If you can help us by
running a fundraiser or if you would like brochures to
distribute please let us know. Thank you.
