All Breed OPTIGEN 20/20 CLINIC
           

            By Cathy Dugan, Clinic Coordinator

            This year’s annual canine health clinic performed over 70 health tests, including 13 JDCM,  17 GM-1 and 19 AKC DNA tests. Co-sponsored by the Northern California Working Group Association and the Portuguese Water Dog Club of  Northern  California, the  event provides an opportunity of owners of all breeds to test their dogs at a substantial  discount.

            We had excellent volunteer support from both clubs who provided great effort throughout the day.

            Test included:
                        JDCM—checks for juvenile cardiomyopathy carriers.
                        GM-1—checks for Storage Disease carriers.
                        Optigen PRA—checks eye disease progressive retinal atrophy carriers.
                        IC-13—Checks for improper coat carriers.
                        AKC DNA—the AKC is the repository for DNA on your dog for  future                                 breeding.

            As a breed, Portuguese Water Dogs are known for their sound health, energy and longevity In fact, health testing has gone a long way to saving this wonderful breed from possible extinction just a few decades ago.
 
            We want to thank all those who volunteered to make this a success.
            Health testing is critical to maintaining and improving the health of our perfectly wonderful dogs!
