DachsLife 2015 has had more than 1000 responses in less than 2 weeks

We’ve had over 1000 responses to our DachsLife 2015 Breed Lifestyle and IVDD survey in less than 2 weeks.

1033 DL15 responses chartMini Smooths represent the largest number of replies which is pretty much what we’d expect given their high level of UK registrations.

This survey is to assist us in finding out if any lifestyle influences contribute to IVDD (Back Disease) in Dachshunds. This is being used to support the research we are doing in conjunction with the Royal Veterinary College.  We are grateful to Dr. Rowena Packer and her colleagues from the RVC for their help in developing this survey.

This survey is primarily for UK-based Dachshund owners, but we are happy to receive responses from owners outside the UK, particularly if your dog was bred in the UK.

If you have more than one dog please complete a separate survey for each dog.

Questions cover:

  • Details of your Dachshund (live dogs only)
  • Any history of, or treatment for, IVDD (Back Disease)
  • How your Dachshund spends its day
  • Exercise
  • Diet
  • Any other health issues
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR DOG’S WEIGHT (in kg) AND HAVE A TAPE MEASURE (in cm) TO TELL US HOW LONG AND TALL HE/SHE IS BEFORE YOU START THE SURVEY.

All responses will be treated as confidential and all results will be presented anonymously.  No owners or dogs will be identifiable from the reports produced.

The survey is for live dogs only.  If you wish to report details of a dog that has sadly died, please use the form at http://www.dachshundhealth.org.uk

We hope to get the first reports and analyses of this survey published in June 2015.  They will be available at www.dachshundhealth.org.uk and notified in our Newsletter and on our website www.dachshundbreedcouncil.org.uk

If you have any questions about this survey please e-mail: survey2015@dachshundhealth.org.uk

You can complete the survey here: open it in a new window.
