In 2018, our fourth full year of operation, we focused our efforts on key initiatives, including: Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs (HGTD); planning for the 4th International Dog Health Workshop (IDHW) in May 2019; and lending an independent voice in addressing complex and often controversial challenges, such as the health and welfare issues in brachycephalic breeds.
The 2018 Annual Report summarizes these achievements and previews our plans for 2019 - such as the Health Strategies Database for Dogs (HSDD), an important complement to the HGTD, which will consider the whole spectrum of health concerns within dog breeds.
Please be sure to share this document with your friends and colleagues to show the important work being done by the IPFD and its supporters.
