We are proud to announce that the Westie Foundation of America, Inc. (WFA) and West Highland White Terrier Club of America have collaborated to make available a new and ongoing Westie Health Survey on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website.
Please click on the link and fill out the short survey for each Westie owned both now and in the past. We are excited about how many potential owners we may reach both here and abroad.
After finishing the survey, you may also click to see an accurate account of results in real time. We are hopeful that this survey will truly give us a more global picture of health status.
The WFA will use the results of this survey to identify the major diseases and health issues afflicting our Westies; thus, which research projects to support with grants and sample collections.
We encourage and are grateful for your participation. Please share this information with other Westie owners.
The following are reports on the results of past health surveys.
