Information form for Sebaceous Adenitis study, to be submitted by dog owners and breeders (includes instructions regarding sample collection and submission) (pdf)

This project depends upon our ability to obtain DNA-containing specimens from at least 25 dogs with a confirmed diagnosis of sebaceous adenitis, in addition to specimens from unaffected dogs, preferably healthy close relatives.
