The Board of the
Leonberger Health Foundation has selected and voted unanimously to have
the Leonberger DNA bank with CHIC. We would like to
encourage every Leonberger owner to participate by sending blood to the
CHIC (OFA) DNA Repository for future research.
Even if you have already donated blood from your Leo to a different
research lab, please donate again but this time to CHIC. We need one
Please fill out both the application and the health survey forms at this
website for your dog, and add that dog’s pedigree; send the blood and
paperwork together. The information and address on gathering, processing
and sending blood is on the application.
At this time, the LHF will pay for the CHIC fee of $20.00
per dog for ALL Leonbergers.
We have the forms here for the convenience of you and your
veterinarians. Please make sure to initial the agreement just above your
signature, so that the LCA and the LHF will be able to obtain the
information on which Leonberger has DNA already stored, and the
information regarding the CHIC health Survey!
