#Cures4Paws Week discount

To Celebrate the Launch of our Cures4Paws week we are pleased to offer a 20% discount on any DNA test developed by or with the help of researchers here at the Animal Health Trust.

What is Cures4Paws week?

Cures4Paws Week, is a new annual campaign, to raise more awareness of the awful diseases such as cancer, epilepsy and blindness which affect dogs. For example:

    • Cancer affects 1 in 4 dogs and is the biggest killer of dogs over the age of 10
    • Like humans, dogs are also affected by devastating epilepsy which can be very difficult to treat
    • Hundreds of dogs have to have their eyes removed each year because of untreatable glaucoma.

These are all problems that our research aims to tackle to ensure dogs have healthy, happy futures. Our vets and scientists work tirelessly – without government funding – to tackle all of these conditions (and many more) affecting man’s best friend. However, as a charity, the AHT simply cannot survive and continue its vital work without the kindness and support of animal owners.

Help spread the word and raise funds to improve dog’s lives, Simply take a photo  with your dog and share this on our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag


You can donate £5 by texting DOGS24 £5 to 70070.

Our Cures4paws week offer for you.

Our canine Genetics research team have to date found at least mutations that cause conditions such as Glaucoma, Progressive Retinal Atrophy and debilitating neurological conditions in dogs. This research has led to the development of DNA tests that can be used by breeders to prevent blindness and suffering in dogs from these conditions.

As part of Cures4Paws week we are offering 20% discount on the DNA tests listed below: all of which exist as a direct results of the work done here are the Animal Health Trust.
