We support statistical efforts to analyze the data from these archives by providing data for download in csv format. We recommend consulting the study documentation for details on the experiments. We also recommend that you contact Ben Haley for information on study parameters, definitions, and additional data.

Data Description
Observation tables include the total number of observations, average age, and average remaining lifespan for all dogs. Categorization tables link observations to their category. Clinical observations are those made using bodily fluids and microscopic technique. Pathological observations are made by disease observation.
