RESEARCH INTO CANCER IN DOGS BY NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY
The University of Nottingham is undertaking research into cancer in dogs and is requesting help from Owners and Breeders. All information is confidential and goes direct to them via their survey, for which a link is supplied below. The Field Spaniel Health Charity offers it's full support to this project which is being carried out by Dr Mark Dunning
Data will be collected by the University of Nottingham on various Spaniel Breeds, and it is stated that statistical updates will be passed back to the Breeds participating. If you have had any dog/dogs that have sadly been affected by Cancer including any that are no longer here, then please spare a few minutes to complete Nottingham University's survey and help in the research to benefit other dogs that may become affected by this awful disease.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SURVEY CAN BE COMPLETED BY OWNERS OF FIELD SPANIELS WORLDWIDE. IT IS NOT LIMITED TO UK DOGS ONLY.
The Field Spaniel Health Charity hope you will all co-operate with this survey, which could be very important to our breed now and in the future. If you would like any more information or have questions on the above, please get in touch with our Secretary Shula Shipton using the link in the left hand border of this page - Thank you.
