We are making arrangements to draw blood for OFA thyroid
profiles on Sunday, October 6, 2013 after the GWPCEN
Specialty and Sweepstakes. For those interested, this will
be a great opportunity to complete a CHIC requirement or
screen a dog for immune-mediated thyroid disease.
We will overnight our samples to Michigan State University
on Monday, October 7th. A minimum of 10
participants will be necessary to receive a discount. We
hope to offer the test for $65-$75. All samples must be
mailed in one “batch” with one payment.
If you are interested in having your dog’s thyroid function
checked, please contact Robin K Nelson at
. We will need to confirm numbers and collect payment prior
to arranging for the discounted price. Download and complete
Application for Thyroid Database
with your dog’s registered name, number, date of birth,
microchip #, etc.
You will need your GWP, your partially completed Thyroid
Database application, and a second check for $15 payable to
OFA. Come to the designated Thyroid Clinic location at the
Lancaster Event Center on Sunday. We will do the rest!

AKC DNA Clinic will be
available at the same time and place as the thyroid clinic.**
DNA registration will be required for GWPS over 2 years of
age for the Nationals 2014 field and conformation events.
The AKC fee at National specialties is reduced to $30 rather
than the regular $40. Please bring a copy of your AKC
registration form and contact Ray Calkins at
so we have the kits available and the correct information
for your dog!!
