CHIC DNA Repository

The CHIC DNA Repository collects and stores canine DNA samples to facilitate future research aimed at reducing the incidence of inherited disease in dogs.  The CWCCA will cover all the costs associated with the collection, shipment and processing of samples collected at our National.  All you need to do is order the test(s) at the NS Cardishop, fill out the form for each dog and bring it along with your dog or dogs to the service center for a quick blood draw.  A schedule for blood draws will be posted. 

Please contact Barbara Merickel with any questions.
