***PERMISSION TO CROSS POST***


I have started a Cystinuria database for all mastiffs, past and present.  I realized that our community does not have one page to view that will list mastiffs and their results.  Many people test, but do not forward their results to OFA (although it is encouraged) and I thought this would be a good place to compile information on our dogs.

This is a FREE service and you can view the page at http://mastiffs.org/CystinuriaDatabase.html

Your participation would be appreciated and we are asking that you provide the following information:

  • Name of Mastiff
  • Sex
  • Registration Number
  • UPenn Urine Number(s)
  • Results
  • Date of birth
  • Date of test(s)
  • **Optional** Age in months when tested  (use this link for calculator)

Please forward your information to timber@pacific.net and results will be posted to this page.  You are welcome to submit multiple test results on each dog. 

For tested dogs, we are linking registrations numbers to their OFA page.  If you would like to submit your Cystinuria results to OFA to be included with your other testing, click to download form.

Thank you very much for your participation!

**This site is not responsible for, nor can verify the results, accuracy or extent of the testing and should be verified with each breeder**

Jann - Thank you so much for doing this, could you ad dogs age in months when the test was completed.  I know I like having that field on OFA that is a quick way to understand to see the dogs age quickly.

Thanks you guys.  Shannon, maybe at some point I can add that field.  I like it too.  OFA uses their computer brain to calculate months, but if I'm feeling energetic, I may add it at some point.  Thanks!

Jann - How about asking for the # of months old when folks send you their information. 

I found an online calculator that you could use.  http://www-users.med.cornell.edu/~spon/picu/calc/agecalc.htm

I hope that helps.

Thanks you guys.  It seems to be going well.

On another note, I am really hoping there are people that will come forward and list their positive dogs.  I know it's a hard thing to do, but it can only help in the long run.  I don't believe in pushing people to do something that they're not comfortable with, but maybe we can discuss the benefits of being more open with results??

This is very nice! I would love it if you could include other health issues that are not covered by OFA....cancer, Wobblers, epilepsy, etc

I think we can bump up the #'s here Jann :-)

Thank you to all who tested their boys at REMC !

I will be sending in 14 collections to UPENN today (I've been waiting for 4 more boys that I now have) and the results should be back next week.
Hopefully the owners will post results here.

And remember this cystinuria clinic is an annual event. You can count on it every October to get your boys tested :-)

Just a reminder that we have a Cystinuria database for anyone that would like to submit their dog's information. If your dog is already listed and you had the DNA test done, I'd be happy to add that to your current information. Thank you!
