Those who published their known C+ dogs should send in blood to UPenn if they have not done so to date.

This will help the project move forward as the supply of blood from C+ has been very limited in aiding research efforts.

Thanking you all in advance!

If the cost of drawing blood & mailing is an issue, please send the vets receipt to me & postage receipt to UPenn Cystinuria research and I'll personally reimburse your expense.

Most vets will do blood draws at no or really reduced cost if you tell them you are donating it to research studies especially if you do it at an appointment you have for something else. 

Remember if your dog has Cancer Broad Institute needs thier blood too.  I know that donating blood is the last thing you think about when you get any diagnoise but without their blood we can not find the answers.

Also, if you have a close relative to a C+ dog (male or female),  blood/urine will be appreciated by the researchers! Mary, thanks for the heads up on the cancer research too.

Angus' blood and a second urine sample is going in the week of the 6th. He has an appointment that day.


and if you can, think good thoughts on the morning of the 10th. The dangly bits will be removed and I am a nervous momma when it comes to anesthetic.

Sending great thoughts/prayers to Angus!!

Also, if I remember the form correctly, there is a place you can check if you KNOW that your dog has a close relative with Cystinuria. UPENN doesn't send you back anything saying your dog has a close relative unless you checked that box in the first place. I think it ask for the reason for submission (symptoms, breeding, close affected relative)...
