This morning, H&M went and posted the cheek swab samples for AHT's proposed Japanese Akita Inu Sebaceous Adenitis research project.
Besides SA affected dogs and healthy seniors, AHT has expanded the sample collection parameter to familiar dogs (see link below for more details) JACA and AKIHO NA branch members contributed 70+ samples to this bulk shipment.
If you are interested in contributing a sample towards AHT's future research, please PM' me
Do these horses look happy to you? The answer may seem obvious, but facial expressions are not commonly recognised as a sign of pain... When a horse is ridden, changes in their facial expression could be due to pain or discomfort. Unfortunately these signs are not commonly noticed when a horse is ridden - it's difficult to see when you are riding unless you have a trainer or mirror to help. But also, these faces are not often associated with the horse telling you that what you are asking them to do, hurts.
By developing a handy guide of these facial expressions, we hope to make it easier for these signs to be recognised so that owners and trainers can get the veterinary help these horses may need.
Why not take a closer look at you horse's facial expression - do they look happy to you?

Taylor is back in our car heading home!! After a consult with surgeon and oncologist the main concern is him not having eaten since Monday afternoon so they gave me some tablets to help his appetite. Get him in the car and he starts eating Soopa Cranberry treats and scoffs a whole pack! Next he moved on to Liver Alpha Spirit treats and then several Dehydrated pork spaghetti treats! Now he's chilling on the bed in the back of the car!! So glad he is coming home AND that he's eaten something - the biopsy also came back for his liver showing NO sign of metastatic disease which means cancer hasn't spread so far!! More checks to come and more treatments but Taylor is looking good :-) #norwichterrier#soopa#oursoopaday#aht#animalhealthtrust#kickingcancersass#seniordogsprogressawards#canineconditioningjoenutkins
I did it! The most challenging event I have ever done but it makes getting the medal around my neck all the more worth while.
