White head in Whippets

Ongoing research project, contact: med vet Sarah Kiener

Whippet mit Weissköpfigkeit

The characteristic white-headedness in whippets is hereditary and together with Laboklin we would like to investigate the genetic causes. For this we need EDTA blood samples of Whippets with white heads and the normal coat colours. Therefore we kindly ask breeders, owners and veterinarians for their help to send us blood samples and a photo of the white head.
