This is fascinating.

I'm not aware of any project in the US with such a broad, ambitious scope. There are programs (like the Morris Animal Foundation) that work with certain breeds, but this could provide some really useful information.

From the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, "Pets to be kept 'under surveillance' for diseases and disorders with new national database."

(They make it sound super creepy, but it's totally not.)
