Lifetime Follow-Up of Canine Hemangiosarcoma

PARKER FORD, PA, July 13, 2020 09:00 ET — The Portuguese Water Dog Foundation is pleased to support the continuation phase of the Shine On project with the Golden Retriever Foundation, the American Boxer Charitable Foundation and the AKC Canine Health Foundation.

In this continuation phase of the Shine On project, the group of dogs that were originally enrolled in the study and received the  Shine On Suspicion (SOS) Test will be followed for their lifetimes to identify any diagnosis of cancer or another chronic disease, the cause of death, and date of death.

The goals of this project is to develop firm proof of concept to support larger clinical trials, and eventually deployment of this approach to vet clinics for all dogs at risk of developing hemangiosarcoma.

The Foundation is proud to continue the vital support in the detection and treatment of hemangiosarcoma and has promised a support level of $269,238.
