Dr. Clark of Clemson University is expanding her research into congenital (juvenile) megaesophagus to include the Great Dane. If you have a "mega survivor" or a puppy with megaesophagus & want to participate in the breed study, contact Dr. Clark (address/email below) & give her your mailing address. She will then send you the forms to fill out & detailed instructions on collecting DNA on your "mega" Dane.
