Blood from Akitas is needed
Still in France, in 2013, the National Centre for Scientific Research began a research about screening for Akita’s genetic diseases. To help this action, we need to collect blood samples from dogs (sick or not). You can ask for the collection kit sending an email here: firstname.lastname@example.org. The ISI association works with those professionals. Our slogan is : “Their health, it is our fight”.
