Just launched is a dedicated new international website for Juvenile Kidney Disease in Boxers.
The website's aim is to raise awareness, provide information on the disease for owners and breeders, publish pedigree information for affected dogs and provide a centralised point to report new cases.
A big well done to the team headed up by geneticist Dr Bruce Cattanach - I know the website has been a lot of work.
Please spread the word to any and all dog/pet sites. The more awareness, and the more pedigree information gathered, the greater the chance of cracking this horrible condition which we documented in Pedigree Dogs Exposed Three Years On in 2012.
For a reminder of just how important this is, please watch the clip below. NB there is now greater awareness - and more support within the breed - than we documented three years ago, but juvenile kidney disease remains a real blight in Boxers and more action is needed.
