2020 Cardiac Clinic Information

The Whippet Health Foundation will be conducting cardiac clinics in Wisconsin this October (2020). These will be echocardiogram clinics only and pre-registration is required. No other testing will be done at these clinics. The Whippet Health Foundation will be subsidizing a portion of the per dog cost for this cardiac testing for those dogs participating in the WHF database.

All test results subsidized by and released to the WHF Database will be public record. It is up to you to enter your dog into the WHF database and to provide us with a copy of the test results.
