We send out a big congratulations to breeder Toni Bøgemose Chrillesen of Unavoq Kennels in Denmark, as all puppies in the Extreme North litter between Keikewabic’s Tundra Tuisku, WTD, WPD and DKCH Unavoq’s Dakotah Uniq, born in September 2010, have now been through their health exams with excellent results. All seven pups have A hips, free elbows and clear eyes. Big congratulations also to Bettina and Anders Lübbert who co-own the dam and did an excellent job of raising this litter. Tuisku is very proud of his kids 🙂
We did a routine thyroid test on Tuisku during September and as expected the result was thyroid normal and negative for TgAA. Since Tuisku is already seven years of age, and is negative for TgAA (Thyroglobulin Autoantibodies), the risk of him developing this disease at a later stage in life is quite small. For this test we used the laboratory at the University Animal Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden (SLU). If you live in Sweden and wish to test your dog, you can download This form and bring it to your vet when you take the blood sample. Remember to make the appointment in the beginning of the week, to make sure the sample doesn’t get stuck in the mail over the weekend. We recommend using the following alternative on the form: Tyreoidea: Fritt-T4+Tot-T4+TSH+TgAA (hund).
It’s always great to receive good news about health!
