SHCA Trust: Health

The Health arm of the SHCA Trust funds medical research related health and medical issues affecting the Siberian Husky. We also support seminars related to health and medical issues in Siberian Huskies .

Each year the AKC Canine Health Foundation polls breed parent clubs about their top health concerns and research interests. This poll is not scientific but represents the opinions of a group of representatives from the parent club.

In 2013, these concerns included:

Cataracts

Corneal Dystrophy

Cryptorchidism

Ectopic Ureter

Epilepsy

Hemangioscarcoma

IBS

Monorchidism

Uverdrmatologic Syndrome

 

The SHCA Trust encourages Siberian owners to visit the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website – www.OFFa.org  - and complete the Siberian Husky Health Survey. Information gathered will be available to the parent club, veterinarians and researchers. Personal information and pedigree information is NOT a part of the survey.

Anyone who is interested in obtaining funding for research may contact Delinda Davis  Davis4jdap@aol.com

Trust Health News

The Trust has matched an SHCA donation of $455 to help acquire Siberian Husky DNA samples for banking at the CHIC DNA Repository. This DNA Bank “collects and stores DNA samples along with corresponding genealogic and phenotypic information to facilitate future research and testing aimed at reducing the incidence of inherited disease in dogs.” With The SHCA donation and our matching grant we hope to add 100 more Siberian’s DNA to the CHIC Bank. We would also like to thank the OFA who will be underwriting 50% of the costs of the DNA banking.

The Trust also made a donation to the AKC Canine Health Foundation Epilepsy Research Initiative.
