APLSA PLS HEALTH SURVEY

health survey
WHY A PLS HEALTH SURVEY AT THIS TIME?
*The data we have about PON health are quite outdated and piecemeal

*Without accurate data, we won't know how to help breeders focus on
  improving the breed

*Without accurate data, we won't know which reasearch causes (diabetes,  cancer, eye health,etc.) would be most beneficial to the breed and so we can't focus our efforts accordingly

*Without accurate data, we can't give honest information to people   who are  looking to getting into the breed

*We need pet owners to fill in the survey because oftentimes breeders
  won't , can' t, or would rather not fill it out themselves.  The pet owners
  spend the most time with their pets and know their health and behavior
  better than the breeder.

*All the questions on the survey are completely voluntary, so you don't have to answer anything that you'd prefer not to answer

*The first step to help improve our breed is to know what our strengths and weaknesses are

* While there is no due date, we'd like to get enough responses to be able to get meaningful data

*The survey will be open in case you have additional dogs to add later

*Even in your PON is now healthy we need to know that also...you can
  always enter any further information at a later time--the survey remains
  open

All information about PONS will remain confidential
and
will be entered into a database of  health findings only.
