Description

Add FAQ from Sharon (see her if you have specific questions about content): Is the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study looking at Taurine-deficient Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM)? Taurine-deficient Dilated Cardiomyopathy has recently received a lot of attention within the Golden Retriever community. The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is NOT currently measuring taurine levels in enrolled dogs. However, this is certainly a topic about which researchers can collaborate with Morris Animal Foundation. As always, you will be informed immediately if any clinically relevant information is learned about this disease in our cohort. If you think your dog is at risk or clinically affected, please schedule an appointment with a board certified veterinary cardiologist (http://find.vetspecialists.com/) near you and learn more about efforts to study this disease here.
