Longitudinal Health Project in Scottish Terriers
Nottingham University have secured funding to carry out a long term health project in Scottish Terriers which will involve a review of individual dogs covering health issues, welfare and lifestyle over the life span of the dog. It is hoped that over a period of time important factors can be identified that may influence certain diseases, particularly liver disease and various cancers.
Our Breed is only the 4th pedigree breed, and the only terrier breed, that Nottingham University are currently working with and this is a very exciting and important research project which will hopefully contribute to protecting the future of the breed.
Samples can be collected and questionnaire can completed by all Scottish Terrier owners regardless of whether they are show dogs, pet dogs or rescue dogs. Here is the link:- Longitudinal Health Project in Scottish Terriers by The Nottingham University Canine Breed Health Research Group
