Aussie Epilepsy Research Study

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.

D.A.W.G. Walk and Pet Faire
The Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (D.A.W.G.) is commited to providing medical care and helping hands to comfort sick, injured, and frightened animals that come into shelters in the Mission Viejo and Laguna Niguel areas until they can be reunited with their families or, in the event they have been abandoned, adopted to new families.

We were invited to participate in the annual Walk and Pet Faire and For Toby’s foundation it was an opportunity to tell people about canine epilepsy and what they can do to help stop the disease and to join in the fight. It was a fun day for a good cause with a great turnout. Approximitely 175-200 people stopped by our booth and were very interested in our work and asked questions about canine epilepsy. A donor donated $500 in giveaway items to increase awareness of Toby's Foundation and the fight against canine epilepsy.
