This survey has been created due to the increasing concerns that Gordon Setters may be suffering from early onset heart disease. Before we can understand more about this condition we need to understand more about how frequently Gordon Setters suffer with heart disease in general. The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham is therefore conducting this survey into general heart disease in Gordon Setters. This survey will gather information on the nature of the heart disease including the clinical signs that your dogs suffered as a result of their condition along with the response to treatment and the outcome. By completing this questionnaire, you will be providing us with valuable insight that will enable us to determine how we may best undertake future research into any specific heart condition that occurs in Gordon Setters and hopefully provide better treatment options and possibly a way to eradicate the disease. This research has received ethical approval from the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science Ethics Committee,  The University of Nottingham. We thank you in advance for volunteering your time to contribute towards this project by completing the following questionnaire. The survey should only take around 15 minutes to complete. Please complete one questionnaire for each of your Gordon Setters that has suffered with heart disease.

If you have any queries regarding the project or feedback on the survey please do not hesitate to contact us ( and we will do our best to answer your questions.
