Wednesday, February 8, 2012 ---  Vet tech Jennifer Glockler, from Chicago, draws blood from musher Nicholas Petit's dog "Prince" as vet tech Kimberly McCreedy of Oregon holds Prince steady during the "Pre-race health screening test"at the Iditarod Headquarters in Wasilla.  Each musher is required to have his dogs get this full-range test no later than 30 days prior to the Iditaord.  The tests include:  ECG heart monitoring, full blood chemistry workup and the installation of a micro-chip if the dog does not already have one.  A musher can have this work done on up to 24 dogs, but is only allowed to take 16 on the race.
