International Register of Belgian Shepherds with Stomach Cancer
It is my strong believe that genetic problems in dogs can only be solved by sharing information.
Information enables breeders to make smart decisions and better risk calculations. I fully support the ongoing research searching for the responsible DNA and encourage everybody to donate to this research in any form. A DNA-test would ofcourse be a huge step forward. However, this takes time and I don't believe such a test will be available soon. Until then and maybe also after tests have been developed, we need to share information to reduce the risk for stomach cancer.
This information should not be used to criticize breeders, because:
On special request I added space to list dogs with other type of cancers as well. For each variety there is now a list for stomach cancer and a list for other cancers.
The information about dogs with stomach cancer and other cancers on this website is provided by owners or breeders. I will try to verify as much as possible, but can't guarantee the accuracy of the information.
If you feel there are clear mistakes in the list, please contact me with detailed information.
This website is dedicated to my beloved Sicco, who died of stomach cancer and is still dearly missed by me.
His blood has been donated to the stomach cancer research and will hopefully help finding the responsible gene.
This website is a private initiative, not linked to any organization or breeding club.
