The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation presents new podcasts every two weeks on scientific research being done on a wide variety of canine health issues. The Genome Barks Podcast Series covers many areas of veterinary medicine, from blood disorders and cardiology to cancer and neurology. Recent editions include Familial Heart Disease with Dr. Kathryn Meurs, a board-certified cardiologist at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Meurs has been funded by the AKC Canine Health Foundation for research on subvalvular aortic stenosis in Newfoundlands, golden retrievers and rottweilers; dilated cardiomyopathy in Doberman pinchers and great Danes; and ventricular arrhythmias in boxers. In her podcast, she discusses her research, the symptoms of these diseases and the available genetic tests. For this and other podcasts, visit akcchf. org/news-events/multimedia/podcasts.
