Cowlick of the neck in Whippets

Ongoing research project, contact: med. vet. Matthias Christen

Nackenwirbel beim Whippet

Whippets occasionally have a cowlick of the neck. This characteristic cowlick of the neck is hereditary and we would like to investigate the genetic causes. For this we need EDTA blood samples of whippets with and without the cowlick of the neck. Therefore we ask breeders, owners and veterinarians for their help and samples.
