Dear serra daires owners and breeders all over the world

We like to remind you about Hannes Lohis research of canine epilepsy in University of Helsinki.
At the moment (13.12.2010) theres 94 samples from serras and only 14 samples from sick dogs.
They need much more blood samples, specially from sick dogs; at least 50 pieces is needed before they may start to try to isolate epilepsy gene in our breed.
There have been already major breakthroughs with some other breeds, for example with schipperkes:
so this may be true also with serras some day, just needing help from you!
All information regarding the dogs or owners names will be kept confidential. Results will be released only by the owners consent, so you dont have to worry about reputation or something else J

Here is link to website:

Youll find there information, questionnaires and contacts.

All the best
Juha Parkkila

P.S.Breeders,please be kind and tell to your puppy buyers about this research and encourage to participate.
