GSCA Does Study on Gordon Setter Health
In 2004, the The Health & Genetics Committee of the Gordon Setter Club of America, commissioned Margaret R. Slater, DMV, PHD, to do a National Health Study on Gordon Setters. The purpose of the study was to determine the frequency of specific health problems affecting Gordon Setters and whether or not there could be a relationship between sex of the Gordon and certain health problems. Cancer is the most prevalent, by far. The study examined aprox. 1125 Gordon Setters. They covered a wide range of health problems from skin disorders to Cancer, from behaviors, to causes of death. There's a detailed copy of this study on the Gordon Setter Club of America's website. To see that report Click on the Link in our Favorite Links, "Gordon Setter Club of America".
