...Brief Bio: This international journal aims to disseminate research not only between scientists, but also to inform veterinarians, dog breeders and owners.
This international journal aims to disseminate research not only between scientists, but also to inform veterinarians, dog breeders and owners. To encourage the public understanding of science, each published article will include an extended lay summary plus key “take home messages” for non-specialists and an educated lay readership.
Canine Medicine and Genetics focuses on the following areas:
The journal will not publish articles describing research generated through experimental procedures that inflict pain and suffering to animals.
All articles published by Canine Medicine and Genetics (Formerly Canine Genetics and Epidemiology) are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found here.
DogWellNet.com is the online platform for IPFD and is a curated information hub as well as housing resources to support actions by IPFD and its Partners and Collaborators.
International Dog Health Workshops
The IPFD's signature events, the IDHWs bring together decision makers from professional, regulatory, national and regional, welfare and other organisations that are stakeholders in dog health, well-being and welfare and human-dog interactions under the tagline 'From Information and Collaboration to Action'.
Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs Database
The HGTD Database catalogs information provided voluntarily from genetic test providers (GTPs) including information on their company and services, quality measures and expertise, tests offered and more. We are continually engaging more GTP participants. IPFD has collated and assembled existing and new resources for genetic counselling and education; and provided the foundation for further developments.
As of March 2023, our Pedigree Dogs Database lists 183 breeds: information includes breed standards, population data, club newsletters, breed databases, videos and much, much more. Sections on Native Breeds and Additional Resources including Agria Breed Profiles, Globally Relevant Integrated Health Profile (GRIHP) articles which describe the Big Picture of health on (all) conditions that are of interest within a breed GRIHP and associated IPFD WSAVA Meet the Breed articles are available. Many thanks to breed experts and clubs for sharing information on their breed with the DogWellNet.com Community.
