2015 Nationals DNA Collection


Interest in eliminating genetic disease must be accompanied by the DNA to test for it. Here’s your chance to help! Please provide your German Wirehaired Pointers’ DNA for research purposes. Normally, there is a $20 processing fee to extract and store DNA, but at a Nationals event, OFA pays for half so your cost will be $10 per dog. If you plan to attend 2015 Nationals and have not donated your dogs’ blood to the DNA Repository, please contact me if you are willing to participate. Multi-generation families of dogs are ideal for research purposes. Dogs DO NOT have to have CHIC numbers to donate. We will collect 5-10 ml of blood and have the necessary paper work for you to fill out at the time of the blood draw. To make things easier, please consider filling out the paper work prior.


Please contact Robin K Nelson, DVM @ or 402-290-0585 if you have questions or are willing to participate. We would like some idea of numbers, so I can order tubes and supplies.
