Dogs Needed For Acquired Laryngeal Paralysis Genome-Wide Association Study
The Small Animal Neurology and General Surgery Services are looking for two groups of dogs:
- PUREBRED Labrador Retrievers AND Golden Retrievers 11.5 years old or older with no history of laryngeal paralysis.
- Dogs of any breed, 8 years old or older, that are affected with acquired laryngeal paralysis.
Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination through the Small Animal Neurology or General Surgery Service at UW Veterinary Care, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

This study is looking at genetic predisposition to acquired laryngeal paralysis in Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers using genomic sequencing. It is supported by the Companion Animal Fund.
