All Issues

Call for Marshals

At press time, the organizers of the National Derby Championship remain committed to holding the event as scheduled in Sedalia, Missouri, October 5 – 9.

Sue Metka, the Marshal Coordinator, is looking for volunteers to Marshal on any and all days of the event. Marshals are responsible for ensuring dogs are in the holding blinds and are available to run when it’s their turn. That’s the hard part. The fun part is watching some of the finest young dogs in the country, seeing challenging tests on world class grounds and meeting other field trialers.

If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Sue at 484-576-9387.

Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia (TVD) Study -- Participants Needed

Tricuspid Valve Disease is “an often fatal congenital heart defect.” Of those with the defect, Labrador Retrievers account for 25% of the cases.

Embark Veterinary and Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine have teamed up on new study designed to develop a DNA-based test for the disorder.

If your Labrador has been diagnosed with TVD by a board-certified veterinary cardiologist, please consider participating in the study.

6 Reasons Why Vet Care Is Getting So Expensive

We’ve all been there. Whether it’s a routine visit or an emergency, vet care has become a significant part of the budget. Embrace Pet Insurance has published an article on how this came to be.

Reasons include our expectations, what we’re willing to pay, the cost of drugs, regulations, liability insurance and the lack of vets in some locations.
