Science 101: Proteomics
In previous editions of the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study eUpdate, we’ve discussed genomics and transcriptomics, which leaves one last “omic” to tackle – proteomics. Proteomics is the study of all the proteins present in the cell, and their amounts and interactions; and attempts to create a snapshot of all these important processes in an organism.
Ear infections are a common finding in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study cohort. To keep your dog’s ears as healthy as possible, examine them at least once a week and especially after swimming or baths. The ear flap and canal should be pink and glistening and free of odor or discharge. Talk to your veterinary health care team if you notice irregularities and to learn more about routine ear cleaning and care.
