Study by CSU in partnership with Morris Animal Foundation

Colorado State University, in partnership with Morris Animal Foundation, is undertaking a long-term cancer study using golden retrievers. They are looking for owners of young dogs with at least a three-generation pedigree to follow long term, as in 10+ years if possible. You don't need to live in Colorado, but I believe that you will need to participate through visits with your own vet on a regular basis. If you're interested, the study particulars can be found at this website, www.CanineLifetimeHealth.org - they're looking to enroll 3,000 goldens in this study.

sadly, the dog has to be under age 2 to enroll. Otherwise I would.

Mods., if it's okay with Finn's Fan can we move this to the puppy forum, and make it a sticky?

This is the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study through the Morris Foundation, that many of us are already signed up for. Great idea to make it a sticky.

Good to see you Claire's Friend!!
I thought maybe it should be moved to the puppy forum because most people with dogs young enough to participate probably aren't browsing the cancer section. Hopefully.

Great idea or maybe it could be in both!

Making this a sticky in both sections of the forum is a great idea. It was in the Denver Post yesterday or today, which is why I thought it was a new study.

I signed Yogi up right after we got him and gave his vet the link so she can sign up too. We have a few more months until we need to get that initial visit done.

I believe they've been recruiting dogs for over 2 years now and this used to be a sticky, but I guess it got unstuck at some point.

ETA: original announcement: http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...-unveiled.html (MAJOR GR CANCER STUDY Unveiled)
