Good morning, I am a student at Sparsholt College, currently on the Access to HE course in Land-based Studies. For my industry research project, I have chosen to look into the possible link between dewclaw removal and carpal arthritis in flyball and agility dogs. I'm gathering data from owners and vets, aiming to weigh up the risk factors in removing dewclaws, versus leaving them intact and potentially sustaining tears. I'd really appreciate some information from owners of sports dogs, and if you were able to share the questionnaire with other members of the community I'd be very grateful. I have two questionnaires - one for owners and another for veterinary professionals. If you are a vet or vet nurse and would like to participate, please let me know and I will post the form. Thank you! Edit: will try to add the link in a comment, the spam filter doesn't seem to like it! Alternatively, if you'd be interested in helping, emails to firstname.lastname@example.org would be much appreciated.
