Cherry Eye Survey

Currently the MHF is conducting a Cherry Eye Survey to determine the true incidence of Cherry Eye in the Neapolitan Mastiff.  The Cane Corso has also been invited to participate.  By including both breeds in this survey, we are hopeful the data will show whether a link between revealing haw and incidence of Cherry Eye truly exists and the rate of success or failure associated with Cherry Eye tacking in our breed.

The survey is scheduled to take place until March 2011 with a goal of 200 respondents, the results will be published publicly and hopefully inspire a researcher to perhaps consider collecting actual cherry eye tissue for further analysis to determine the true cause.
