DNA from Dogs aged over 5
There is a new notice on the Cavalier Club website which mentions that the Genetic Researchers to find the genes for SM/CM they are still asking for DNA samples from Cavaliers who are over 5 years of age, but preferably over 7, who have been MRI’d and do not have SM. They are also seeking samples from any close relatives that have also been MRI’d, for example siblings, half siblings and offspring. These dogs can be any age. They mention they are using the new “mouth mops”. Read the notice at this address.
