Health has always been a word well adopted by the Glen of Imaal Terrier community and mechanics for the next step are now in place. The Animal Health Trust has agreed store the DNA samples of Glen of Imaal Terriers. DNA can be used to enable researchers, in the future, to identify mutations responsible for inherited diseases and estimate the frequency of disease mutation within the breed.
It can be done either by cheek swab or blood sample so for the future good of the breed do have a read about it. It’s something that ALL Glen people (breeder/show/pet/working) should seriously consider!!
