Wellington Veterinary Clinic is participating in Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study a a groundbreaking effort to learn how to better prevent cancer and other diseases in dogs. It is the largest and longest observational study ever undertaken for dogs, enrolling up to 3,000 golden retrievers and lasting 10 to 14 years. Although restricted to golden retrievers, results from this study will benefit all dogs. Tracey Jensen is seeking additional owners of golden retrievers younger than 2 years of age to participate in this landmark study.

Jensen is committed to helping advance veterinary medicine for the benefit of companion animals, and participation in this study is just one example of that commitment.

The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is part of Morris Animal Foundation’s Canine Lifetime Health Project, a nationwide online community of dog owners willing to participate in studies to learn how to better prevent and treat major diseases affecting dogs.
