PenBay Veterinary Associates joins nationwide effort to prevent cancer in dogs
Rockport — PenBay Vets has become a participating veterinary hospital in Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study.
This study is a groundbreaking effort to learn how to better prevent cancer and other diseases in dogs. It is the largest and longest observational study ever undertaken for dogs, enrolling up to 3,000 golden retrievers and lasting 10 to 14 years. Although restricted to golden retrievers, results from this study will benefit all dogs.
According to Dr. Michael Guy, director of the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, “Morris Animal Foundation would not be able to complete this study without the participation of dedicated veterinarians such as Dr. Bjorn Lee and Dr. Kate Pierce who will perform the examinations and sample collections required for the study.”
PenBay Vets is committed to advancing veterinary medical research for the benefit of its patients, and its participation in this study is just one example of that commitment.
The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is part of Morris Animal Foundation’s Canine Lifetime Health Project, a nationwide online community of dog owners willing to participate in clinical studies to learn how to better prevent and treat major diseases affecting dogs.
