Cystinuria Clinics Saturday, August 22 - Mensona KC, Santa Rosa Saturday, October 17 - REMC Specialty, Pleasanton Cost: $20 (regular price is $40 plus shipping)--all tests must be submitted as a group to get the discounted fee. Membership with REMC not required to submit samples. If you have dogs to test that won't be at the show, I can give you tubes to collect at home and bring back on Saturday. Who should be tested: All mastiffs (male and female) over 6 months of age. Retesting annually is advised. Dr. Giger is particularly interested in getting urine samples from dogs/bitches with parents/relatives who are known to have cystinuria. This is a quick, easy, painless test....just a urine collection, and a great price too. Plus REMC is picking up the shipping costs. I know a lot of us have already tested, but is it time to test again? Breeders, how about your puppy owners? Please help us get the word out...if you know anyone with mastiffs, pet or show, please encourage them to get their dogs tested.
If anyone is interested in doing a clinic in your area, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to help you !
