Be a Health Hero

The LRCA Health Committee is conducting a survey for all Lagotti that looks into all aspects of LR health.  There are questions of environment, nutrition, and other factors that make up LR well being.  This is an in-depth survey and we are going to send a Health Hero magnet (see above) as a thank you gift for participating.  Answers are confidential. We hope those with older or deceased LRs will participate as well as those with young healthy dogs.
