Testing

Full Breed Profiles are done on our Dogs using Orivet and collection is done via our Vet. 

The common Genetic diseases are PRA & FN. We are also test for AON via OFA.org 


Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)

 PRA is an inherited disease of the retina in dogs, in which the eyes are genetically programmed to go blind.  

This disease can be avoided with the use of DNA testing. Both our girls are clear so there is no chance of your puppy having the disease.

Familial Nephropathy (FN) or AHRN (Autosomal Hereditary Recessive Nephropathy).

This disease is rare but there are carriers in Australia. As with PRA, our girls are tested for FN, and do not carry the disease. 

Adult Onset Neuropathy (AON)

AON is an inherited neurological disorder characterised by a weakness in the hind limbs, eventually leading to weakness in the front limbs. Neurological signs of this condition seem to progress gradually over 3 to 4 years. Our girls have been tested and are clear of this disease.

HIP AND ELBOW DYSPLASIA - Hip and Elbow Scoring

HD does not have a simple pattern of inheritance (it is a polygenic condition meaning it is controlled by several different genes) and whether an animal will develop HD is also influenced by external factors such as diet and exercise.  our girls have had hip and elbow scoring and are under the median score.
