How to Submit A Blood Sample
Blood Samples Needed for Research and Health Studies!
The Airedale Health Foundation needs your help!
We're working in cooperation with OFA,
CHF, CHIC, and the Morris Animal Foundation, along with canine geneticists and veterinarians to collect blood samples from
all Airedales for study on mode of disease.
We need blood samples from all Airedales,
healthy and affected, for these studies.
And Please remember -No Health Problems

New Year's Resolution Idea: When you take your Airedale
in for his/her annual visit with the vet, remember to ask your vet to collect an extra 5 - 10 mls of blood during the heartworm
check and send it along with a consent form to the Airedale DNA Bank. (Forms can be found at www.airedalehealthfoundation.org)
Ask your vet if he has a cold pack as well for the mailing envelope and for as little as $10.00, you can mail the tube to
the bank, receive contact from the Bank Coordinator and get updates on what researchers and vets are learning in their health
studies. Visit www.airedalehealthfoundation.org to learn more about blood sample submission.
