If you have a dog that you suspect has hereditary ataxia or a close relative of such a dog, we would like to hear from you. We cannot diagnose and recommend treatment for dogs we have not examined, but we can help your local veterinarian with questions. Equally important, you can help us with the search for the genes responsible for these diseases by providing DNA samples and pedigree information. All information supplied is held strictly confidential.

Research on ataxia is being led by
Dr. Dennis O'Brien & Dr. Gary Johnson at the University of Missouri.
The contact person is Liz Hansen
