Genetic markers for Diabetes Mellitus in Samoyed and Australian Terrier dogs

The purpose of the study is to search for genes associated with increased risk for diabetes in Samoyed and Australian Terrier dogs. Early genetic identification of carriers and dogs that are likely to develop diabetes will enable breeders to determine which dogs are not fit for breeding with one another, years before clinical signs of diabetes develop. The ability to predict the disease in young, unaffected, breeding dogs may help prevent diabetes mellitus in these and potentially other breed dogs. It may also protect potential owners of diabetic dogs from long term care for an animal with an incurable disease.

Study Design:
Prospective case-control study

Sample Size:
300 dogs

Inclusion criteria:
Any Australian Terrier or Samoyed diabetic dog (of any age).

Exclusion Criteria:
Diabetic dogs of other breeds.

Study Controls:
Any Australian Terrier or Samoyed dog that is 7 years of age or older that does not have diabetes.

Samples:
The study requires drawing 17 ml of blood (12 ml in purple tops and 5 ml in a red top tube) from each dog.

Costs/Reimbursements:
Dr. Hess will arrange and pay for Fed-Ex pickup of the blood sample at a time convenient for the veterinarian and client.
