Collie Health Foundation is already off to a great start for 2013!
Membership renewals are in and new membership has increased already.
Welcome to all our new members.
The benefits of membership have never been better. Rebates have been extended!
CHF will continue the 2012 rebate of $50 per PRA test by Optigen for CHF
members through 12/31/13. In addition, the Board approved an additional
rebate of $50 per CEA test from Optigen for CHF members through 12/31/13
and a rebate of $20 per MDR-1 test from Washington State University for CHF
members through 12/31/13. For the benefit of all our collies, we encourage you
to take advantage of these great savings opportunities. See
for details.
By the way, did you read the CCA Bulletin article by Corporator Michele Brane on
how to navigate your way through CHF’s website? It is a good idea to take the
time to go through each drop down menu to discover more about our activities.
If you’re still not sure, sign up for the Breeder’s Education Seminar at the National
to let Board Member Pat Jung point you in the right direction. Thanks to Michele
and Pat for their guidance and to Krista Hansen for maintaining the website.
The Foundation expanded its reach by placing an ad in the March issue of Dog
Fancy. This issue focused on the collie and gave us a perfect opportunity to let all
collie-lovers know about the wonderful work we do. Pick up a copy!
Based on the recommendation of the Grants Committee, CHF became a
Champion Sponsor by pledging support of the AKC Canine Health Foundation’s
Bloat Initiative at the $50,000 level. This is an exciting opportunity to join
AKC/CHF in ambitious efforts in education and research. The education project
is two-fold in educating the dog owner of this devastating condition and educating
the veterinary clinician about surgical techniques to treat the dog with bloat as well
as methods to prevent this life-threatening disease. AKC/CHF will undertake a
major research effort to identify the underlying mechanisms of the condition.
Recipients of the grants will be expected to deliver something demonstrable so
that research moves forward in a substantial way. CHF is proud to take the lead
on this project. The 100th Anniversary of Albert Payson Terhune’s “Wolf” will be celebrated at The Gathering at Sunnybank on
August 17th and 18th. We will hold the now famous walking tours of Sunnybank, entertain you with stories about
Wolf, host the bi-annual Rescue Parade and, of course, feature the traditional Virtues and Lad Match Shows. Make
plans now to join us. More details inside.
In closing, please remember that CHF is a volunteer organization and we can always use more help. If you have a
special talent or interest, please let us know.
Thanks for everything you do to help us grow!

The Collie Health Foundation Joins the AKC Canine Health
Foundation’s Bloat Initiative as a Champion Sponsor
The following information about the AKC Canine Health Foundation’s Bloat Initiative comes from a press release
issued by the AKC on January 15, 2013, and has been edited and reformatted for our newsletter.
AKC Canine Health Foundation Fights Bloat in Dogs
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) announced a major effort underway to tackle the devastating condition
commonly known as bloat. The Bloat Initiative will address the need for both education and research.
Gastric dilatation –volvulus, or bloat -- is a devastating condition that can develop in any dog, although it is
particularly common in large-breed and deep-chested dogs. Bloat develops when the stomach fills with air and then
twists on itself, preventing air and liquid from leaving the stomach. Over time, the stomach gets larger and larger.
This cuts off circulation and prevents blood from getting back to the heart from the rest of the abdomen and the
rear legs. The stomach wall itself can also be severely damaged from loss of blood flow as can the spleen. Bloat
requires immediate stabilization and prompt surgical correction, and may still be fatal in some severely affected
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) has released a Bloat Initiative Request for Proposals (RFP) to the
research community. Letters of Intent (LOI) from researchers seeking funding are due on March 18, 2013.
A committee of experts in the field will review the LOI and CHF will invite selected researchers to submit full
proposals. Funding decisions will be announced by October 1, 2013. “Bloat is devastating for dog owners when it
occurs. Through this major funding effort, researchers, for the first time, will have the resources they need to work
towards establishing the causes and pre-dispositions for bloat,” said Dr. Shila Nordone, Chief Scientific Officer of
CHF. “Once we understand why bloat occurs we will have better treatment options and possibly be able to prevent
the syndrome from occurring in the first place.”
To help educate dog owners about bloat, CHF will launch a free webinar in mid-2013 describing possible causes of
bloat, susceptible breeds, symptoms, medical intervention, and explanation of research needed. “Because bloat
progresses so rapidly, part of our focus is on educating the public on the signs and symptoms to look for if they
suspect their dog may have bloat,” said Nordone. The Foundation will also provide continuing education for
veterinarians showing surgical procedures used for prevention during spay and neuter.
CHF is extremely grateful for the dog clubs that, as the inaugural sponsors of the Bloat Initiative, are making these
education and research efforts possible.

Grants Committee Update
Nancy Kelso, DVM, Chair
Grants Approved in 2013:
1. AKC OAK Grant 01766: Identification and Validation of the Genes That Define Abnormal Development of
the Kidney in Dogs - Principal Investigator: Dr. Kerstin Lindblad-Toh, PhD, Broad Institute
Abnormal development of the kidneys, known as Renal Dysplasia, occurs in many breeds of dogs as well as humans. An increased prevalence in
certain breeds such as Boxers, Miniature Schnauzers, Lhasa Apsos, Shetland Sheepdogs, and Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers suggests a genetic
influence. Identification of the genetic cause in dogs is essential as there is no treatment and affected dogs progress to renal failure and death at a
young age. It is unknown if the same gene is affected in all breeds with renal dysplasia or if different genetic variants exist in each breed. In this
study Dr. Lindblad -Toh will conduct genetic and functional studies to identify the causative mutation in Boxers. Her research group will also
collect additional samples from Miniature Schnauzers, Lhasa Apsos, Shetland Sheepdogs, and Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers. Genome-wide
association studies in Boxers and other breeds will help dissect the genetics of canine renal dysplasia, improve our understanding of renal
development in dogs and humans, and determine whether breed specific genetic tests will be required for prevention.
2. AKC OAK Grant 01844: Treatment of Urinary Incontinence with Multipotent Muscle Cells: A Regenerative
Medicine Approach to a Common Canine Health Problem - Principal Investigator: Dr. Shelly Vaden, DVM
PhD, North Carolina State University
Incontinence affects more than 20% of spayed female dogs, with medium and large breeds more commonly affected. In the majority of the
cases urinary incontinence is caused by dysfunction of the muscles controlling the urethral sphincter. This results in uncontrolled loss of urine
and can lead to serious bladder and kidney infections, in addition to irritation and/or ulceration of the skin in contact with the urine. Treatment
can include hormone therapy, drugs designed to strengthen the muscle tone of the urethral sphincter, collagen injections, or surgery. Recently,
Dr. Vaden’s lab has reported that injection of muscle progenitor cells into damaged urethral sphincters can restore normal function in dogs. The
purpose of this project is to extend those observations and examine the usefulness of cultured muscle cells for the restoration of function of the
urethral sphincter in dogs with naturally occurring urinary incontinence.
3. AKC OAK Grant 01849: Filling the Gaps in the Canine Genome - Principal Investigator: Dr. Shaying Zhao,
PhD, University of Georgia
The sequencing of the genome of man's best friend in 2005 has provided an invaluable resource to the canine research community, and has
reinforced the position of the dog as an important model organism to study human physiology and disease. Unlike the human and the rodent
models (the mouse and the rat), very few dog genes had been sequenced prior to its whole genome sequencing. Consequently, the dog genome
has been annotated for its gene content primarily based on mapping the gene-related sequences from the human, the mouse, the rat, and other
non-dog species to the dog genome. While providing the research community with an unprecedentedly large set of dog genes, the definition of
DNA sequences as coding sequences (i.e. gene annotation) has substantial errors and is missing in dog-specific information in many aspects.
This significantly hinders research in many fields such as disease gene discovery and cancer-causative gene mutation identification, where
functional information about a gene is required to make progress. Recently emerged next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies provide an
unprecedented opportunity to correct these errors and to supply the missing information in the current dog gene annotation in a time- and costeffective fashion. We propose herein to use state of the art NGS strategies to identify genes/transcripts expressed in major dog tissues and cell
4. Investigation of Diversity at the Dog Leukocyte Antigen Class II Loci in American and international Collies
- Principal Investigator: Dr. Leigh Anne Clark, Clemson University
This is the expansion of Dr. Clark’s genetic research, highly supported by our grants committee. While Dr Clark is mapping the collie genome
and looking for the DM gene, she was also curious on the presence of certain genes (DLA) associated with autoimmune disease (if there isn't
diversity in these genes). She took it upon herself to research a few samples and thus far there is very little diversity in these genes in collies
(whether they have DM or our normal controls), she would like to greatly expand this research.
Grants approved in 2012:
1. Championship sponsorship level with AKC's Bloat Initiative
2. Additional funding for Oregon State Urinary Incontinence and GnRH vaccine
3. University of Florida- The Use of Skin Punch Biopsy to Diagnose Polyneuropathy
Older studies supported by CHF that are still open for participation:
1. Dermatotmyositis and mapping the collie genome w/Clemson
2. Vetgen's search for the vWB gene in inappropriate bleeding collies
3. Dogenes GDV and stress genetic research

You know the Collie benefits when you join the Collie Health Foundation as your dues help fund health research.
Indirectly you benefit when the dog you love is able to live a longer and healthier life because of genetic testing
available to breeders or increased knowledge on how to prevent/treat disease or other health issues. Now, though,
YOUR MEMBERSHIP OFFERS YOU A DIRECT BENEFIT in the form of rebates for select DNA tests.
In early 2013, the Board of Directors voted to extend the rebate offered to CHF members for Optigen’s PRA tests
and added rebates for Optigen’s CEA tests and Washington State University’s MDR1 tests.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
The PRA test (rod-cone dysplasia Type 2 <rcd2>) is available through Optigen. The normal price for this test is
$180 per dog. For this special Collie Health Foundation event, Optigen is generously offering a 25% discount ($45)
discount per test. In order to receive Optigen’s discount, please use the special code CHF13REF when applying for
the test.
As a further incentive, the Collie Health Foundation will offer to Collie Health Foundation members only an
additional $50 refund per test. This makes the test $85, which is a savings of $95 per test per dog! This special
pricing will remain in effect until 12/31/13.
Check out the Optigen website for information on testing:
Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA)
Collie Eye Anomaly is a recessively inherited eye disorder that causes abnormal development of the choroid - an
important layer of tissue under the retina of the eye. The CEA test is available through Optigen. The normal price
for this test is $180 per dog. The Collie Health Foundation will offer to Collie Health Foundation members
only a $50 refund per test. This makes the test $130. This special pricing will remain in effect until 12/31/13.
Check out the Optigen website for information on testing:
DNA for either Optigen test can be gathered using a cheek swab, blood, or semen.
Multi-Drug Resistant gene (MDR1)
The discovery of the mutation of the multi-drug resistant gene (MDR1), establishment of testing procedures, and
development of all reagents was made by Washington State University. The usual pricing is $70 per test for 1-4
tests included in a single shipment, and $60 per test for 5 or more tests included in a single shipment (a 15%
discount). The CHF offers a $20 rebate per test for MDR1 testing at Washington State University for Collie
Health Foundation members only. .With this rebate, the final cost will be $50 each for 1-4 tests, and $40 each for
five or more tests. This rebate offer will remain in effect until 12/31/13.
For more information, go to the Washington State website:
DNA for this test is gathered using a cheek swab.
For your rebate(s) for any of these tests, submit your paid receipt(s) to the CHF Treasurer: Nancy
McDonald – 2834 Cotton Road – Sanford, NC 27330.
