Jessica and Cambria, her wheaten Scottie, write:
I hope the holidays treated you & Bridget well! Cambria got so many treats I’m not sure we’ll ever accomplish the vet-mandated 2 pound weight loss.
I was hoping that you could help spread the word about a research project going on at NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr.Olby is heading up a team that is researching Scottie cramp. They are collecting blood samples from Scotties with and without Scottie cramp to find a genetic link to the disorder. All of the information about the project can be found here (Update: Link no longer works unfortunately).They’re also requesting video of scotties during a cramp episode to help with the research.
Our local club in Charlotte, NC is holding a blood sample drive next Saturday to try & collect as many samples as we can. The head of this group can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org (Harry Bufkin) if you have any questions about organizing such an event. Thankfully, we’re close enough that the vets from NC State are coming down to collect blood samples, but the same thing could be organized with any local vet.
Happy New Year!
