Vision Loss in Golden Retriever Pigmentary Uveitis December 11, 2020

CHF-funded investigators studied Golden Retrievers affected with pigmentary uveitis over time to determine the incidence of vision loss, the risk factors for developing glaucoma, and the effect of treatment on disease progression

Development of Cognitive Traits in Dogs December 7, 2020

CHF-funded research suggests that canine cognitive traits develop relatively early in life and are stable over time.

Genetic Mutation Discovered for Mucopolysaccharidosis in Miniature Pinschers November 27, 2020

To further define the genetic mutation(s) that cause muchopolysaccharidosis VI in dogs, CHF-funded investigators analyzed DNA in the area that codes for the affected enzyme in Miniature Pinschers and Miniature Schnauzers.

Unraveling the Causes of Canine Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia November 20, 2020

By comparing the genes expressed in dogs with newly diagnosed but untreated IMHA versus those expressed in healthy dogs, CHF-funded investigators hope to identify specific genes that are turned on early in disease development and can be used as treatment targets.

Researching Health Risks for the Dogs of 9/11 November 10, 2020

CHF-funded researchers found that the long-term risk of adverse health effects in search and rescue dogs deployed following 9/11 was low.
