The information below is from Nicole Cottam at Tufts. Please respond directly to her at the email address or phone number listed. If you have a BT – affected or unaffected – please consider submitting a sample. With the testing no longer requiring a blood sample, participation is much simpler.
More bull terriers are needed to complete Tufts genetics tail chasing study. We are enrolling both tail chasers and non-tail chasers. Participation no longer requires a veterinary visit for a blood sample. We are now using saliva samples to access DNA. A saliva sampling kit will be mailed to owners of qualified bullies. Interested owners should contact Nicole Cottam for more information – Nicole.firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-887-4802.
