Complete package of genetic tests for prevention of genetic health in Rhodesian Ridgebacks...
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.
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...
