    CANDIDATE GENE SEARCH FOR DCM GENES IN THE GREAT DANE:

    Drs. Oyama & Meurs, recognized leaders in the field of canine cardiology research, are looking at some candidate genes in the Great Dane they believe may well be vitally important to the disease known as dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). You can help. The researchers not only need to have direct contact with any Danes diagnosed with DCM, they need DNA samples from OLDER VETERAN DANES who are healthy and not affected by heart disease. Data will be shared with the LUPA cardiology project for the breed (an ongoing commitment of Drs. Meurs & Oyama). See the form at the H&W section for details.

    Questions? Email or call the H&R Chairman (contact info directly follows).

    Well behaved danes are not born. They are “made” by responsible and caring dane owners.
