Rhodesian Ridgeback - genetic tests

The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a dog breed whose hallmark is the stripe of backward growing hair on its back. The breed became famous in its native Africa for its ability to track and hunt lions. The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a fast and powerful athlete, weighing between 30 and 40 kilograms. The sturdy Ridgeback can be willful, independent and sometimes domineering. They are loyal friends, protective of their loved ones and overflowing with love for those they trust.

Ridge predisposition

Ridge gene test, Ridgelessness, Dermoid Sinus predisposition

RIDGE

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.

Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Myoclonic seizures

JME

The disease is characterized by myoclonic seizures, which cause rapid uncontrolled muscle jerks and twitches

Early Onset Adult Deafness

Hearing loss

EOAD

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...

Degenerative Myelopathy

DM

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.

B-locus

Liver nose, Brown

BLOK

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).

56 €

D Locus

Dilution, d1 allele

DLOK

The tested variant causes coat colour dilution. In black-coloured individuals of different breeds, the hair appears gray (blue)...

Malignant Hyperthermia

Canine stress syndrome

MH

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...

Haemophilia B

Christmas disease, Factor IX deficiency

HEMB

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.
