SHR HEART STUDIES

The SHR-supported Saluki Heart Pathology Study is completed. The goal was to examine 100 Saluki hearts and the results have been summarized (Baraka Book, 2002 link below).
If you are concerned that your Saluki has died due to a heart condition, a gross and microscopic examination can be performed on the heart.
The fees can range from $75 to $200 and many diagnostic centers do not have a pathologist whose specialty is in this area. See links below
to “why a post-mortem examination?” and
“post mortem examination checklist.”
Contact me if I can be of assistance.
