We thank Olivier Borie, Aurore Brindejont, Xavier Cauchois, Dimitri Dagios, Angelique Gouffier, Ingrid Gruyer and Emilie Monnet for their very good daily cares to our canine patients. We thank the units of medical imaging and of biochemistry of the Ecole Nationale Veterinaire d'Alfort for their support to the clinical follow-up of the dogs.
