Foundation News

Dear Fellow Springer Spaniel Owners and Breeders:

We need your help!  The ESS Foundation was contacted by Dr. Steven Friedenberg at the University of Minnesota Veterinary school.  In collaboration with a critical care vet at the University of Wisconsin, they want to identify English Springer Spaniels who experienced SIGNIFICANT BLEEDING, either as the result of TRAUMA OR SURGICAL EVENTS (for example, spay/neuter) that can not be explained by typical blood clotting tests.

The case of interest was a six month old ESS who presented with significant bleeding post spay as a result of a defect in the fibrinolytic (clotting) system.  Whole genome sequencing of DNA revealed a mutation at a location typically related to clotting.  Dr. Friedenberg and his colleague need to obtain additional blood samples of affected dogs to prove their hypothesis.

If you have a dog or are aware of a dog that meets this criteria, your help is critically needed!  Please reach out to me (liz.westringágmail.com) and Dr. Friedenberg (fried255@umn.edu) to make arrangements for obtaining a DNA sample. He may also ask for pedigree information, if available, as family units can provide valuable information.

We appreciate your support!
