ASC Foundation
Cocker Spaniel-Comprehensive Breed Health Survey Project


Learning what is, isnít and what could be: Reports

Award winning project part of two national conferences on canine health.

With the help of Dr. Chet Thomas, we have published reports of the first six weeks of the Cocker Spaniel-Comprehensive Breed Health Survey. Though the initial numbers are low, around 300, this first data set serves as a test to check the online survey tool, the flow of data from the data manager to Dr. Thomas, and the compilation of the reports.

In the future...
As the project develops, it will have the technical capacity to generate comparison reports for individual dogs. An owner, using their PIN will be able to compare their own dog to the general health of Cockers as represented by this survey.

More information on this feature will be announced when it becomes available.
