The Working Dog Project is a collaborative effort of the Theriogenology Foundation and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. It is the most ambitious canine behavioral genetics study ever conceived and is designed to identify the genetic basis for working ability in dogs by comparing the DNA of thousands of dogs through the use of whole genome sequencing.

We breed purebred dogs and cats to preserve a closed, and therefore endangered, gene pool. With each planned breeding of our purebred/purpose-bred dog or cherished feline, we aim to produce a generation of healthier offspring. Whether you need pre-breeding health clearances for both your stud dog and brood bitch, semen cryopreservation, advanced insemination procedures, high risk pregnancy monitoring or DNA testing of neonates, we help you breed for success.
Slade's COVID Policy Update
*UPDATE ON JANUARY 11, 2022*
Due to the current COVID surge, Slade Veterinary Hospital will be temporarily changing back to curbside service for all appointments and pick ups. This will be effective as of Tuesday, January 11th, 2022.
For patient appointments, please text or call us at 508-875-7086 when you arrive to check in with the receptionist. A staff member will then call you to review the details of your appointment and arrange to meet you under the awning by the side door. The technician will escort your pet into the office while you return to your car.
For food and medication pickups, please text or call when you arrive and we will kindly ask that you meet us under the awning by the side door so we can give you your products. Thank you for trusting our policies, and most importantly, our ability to give your pet the care you want and expect.
