RIDGE, JME, DM, MH, DLOK, BLOK, HEMB, EOAD
Complete package of genetic tests for prevention of genetic health in Rhodesian Ridgebacks. The package includes genetic tests: Predisposition for Ridge (RIDGE) Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) D-Locus (DLOK) B-Locus (BLOK) Hemophilia B (HEMB) Early Onset Hearing Loss (EOAD)
Ridge gene test, Ridgelessness, Dermoid Sinus predisposition
The ridge formation in Rhodesian and Thai Ridgeback is caused by mutation (duplication of stretch of DNA sequence including several genes). The mutation is called simply a ridge gene and shows dominant inheritance.
The disease is characterized by myoclonic seizures, which cause rapid uncontrolled muscle jerks and twitches
The genetic disease that is characterised by hearing loss early in life, in which affected individuals lose their sense of hearing within 1-2 years after birth...
It is a neuromuscular disease causing a gradual muscle weakness on the hindlimb and back, which is manifested by poor coordination of movements, cramped and asymmetric walking, or incontinence.
Ivermectin sensitivity, MDR1 gene defect, Multidrug sensitivity
Multidrug resistance 1 is a hereditary disease that makes affected dogs particularly sensitive to certain drugs...
Liver nose, Brown
The tested variant causes brown colouring of a nose ("livernose"), mucous membranes and claws. The inheritance is autosomal recessive (black allele and colour is dominant).
Dilution, d1 allele
The tested variant causes coat colour dilution. In black-coloured individuals of different breeds, the hair appears gray (blue)...
Canine stress syndrome
It is a congenital disorder of skeletal muscle which is manifested by the significant increase in temperature (hyperthermia) up to 45°C, accelerated and irregular heart rate (tachycardia and arrhythmia), hyperventilation, muscle rigidity and may result in renal failure and death...
Christmas disease, Factor IX deficiency
It is a rare blood disorder in which the blood is unable to clot properly, leading to excessive bleeding. Bleeding can be initiated from injury, trauma and surgery.
Achromatopsia, Day blindness, Hemeralopia, Rod monochromacy, CD1
Cone degeneration (also called Achromatopsia) is a disease characterized by loss of cone photoreceptor function, resulting in daytime blindness...
Early onset cataracts, Juvenile cataracts
Hereditary cataract (cataract) is a disease affecting the lens of the eye in which the lens gradually becomes cloudy...
Rod-Cone Dysplasia 4
Progressive Retinal Atrophy rcd4 is an eye disease that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. The disease leads to degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells in dog...
Progressive Retinal Atrophy
Progressive rod-cone degeneration (PRA-prcd) is an inherited late-onset eye disease affecting many breeds of dogs...
X-linked progressive retinal atrophy (XLPRA1) is an inherited eye disease affecting dogs. XLPRA1 results from degeneration of photoreceptor cells in the retina...
Osteochondrodysplasia (OCD) is an inherited disease that affects Miniature Poodles. The disease is characterized by stunted growth and abnormal movement...
Neonatal encephalopathy is fatal disease in newborn puppies of Standard Poodles. The affected puppies are small and weak at birth, and often die in the first week of life...
L Locus, long hair, short hair
The L locus affects the length of the hair coat of dogs due to a DNA variant in the FGF5 gene...
Pituitary dwarfism (also called nanism) is a disease that leads to a dwarf growth of dogs and is caused by degeneration of the pituitary gland with a consequent lack of production of growth hormones...
Hansen's Type I IVDD, Intervertebral Disc Disease
Chondrodysplasia (CDPA) is a genetic disease causing abnormal growth of cartilage and early changes in the structure of growth plates. The affected dogs are generally characterized by a normal sized trunk and short limbs.
Hyperuricosuria is characterized by an elevated levels of uric acid in the urine and can lead to the formation of bladder or kidney stones.
Pseudohemophilia, Vascular hemophilia
Von Willebrand disease I (VWDI) is an inherited bleeding disorder in dogs and other mammals...
