Dachtober 2023: your opportunity to support our new IVDD research projects

Dachtober fundraising month

It will soon be Dachtober and we need your help to raise funds to support our new IVDD research projects at Cambridge University Vet School.

We want to raise £15,000 to support a PhD student project investigating the genetics and potential preventive treatments for Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD).

So, throughout October 2023, we're encouraging clubs, individuals and groups of Dachshund owners to organise fundraising events and activities.

Let us know what your plans are and we will share them on our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram). Email

You can read about the previous IVDD project at Cambridge which has investigated conservative treatment options for paralysed dogs.

Donations can be submitted via our PayPal account, here. Select the Dachtober option in the pull-down menu.

Thank you for your support.
