New auto-immune disease study

The JBLC has previously funded research at the Royal Veterinary College looking at markers to try and identify Bearded Collies with Addison's disease. The RVC is now embarking on a new large study of auto-immune disease in the dog and looking for volunteers. They are specifically looking for dogs newly diagnosed with IMHA, ITP,IMPA and SRMA - see criteria on link. Please pass the message on if you know of anyone with a Bearded Collie that fits these criteria.
