Uric Acid DNA Test (Hyperuricosuria)

Hyperuricosuria, or elevated uric acid level in the urine, is inherited as an autosomal recessive disorder and is characterized by the formation of bladder stones and occasional kidney stones.

Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) in Canine Breeds

DM is a degenerative disease of the spinal cord, characterized by muscle weakness in the hind limbs eventually leading to paraplegia.

Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (HNPK) in Labrador Retrievers

HNPK affected dogs will develop dry, rough crusts on the tip of the nose. In extreme cases, the dog’s nose will crack causing severe discomfort.

Multidrug Resistance 1 (MDR1)

MDR1 affected dogs are at risk of developing neurologic symptoms from several common drugs.

Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC)

Dogs clinically affected by Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) will often begin to exhibit leg weakness followed by a complete collapse after just 5 to 15 minutes of strenuous activity.

Centronuclear Myopathy in Labrador Retrievers

CNM is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder and is characterized by weight loss, awkward gait and exercise intolerance.

Cystinuria in Newfoundlands and Labradors

A metabolic disorder that can cause stones in the urinary tract.

von Willebrand’s Disease Type 1

vWD is the most common inherited bleeding disorder in canines. Type I vWD is characterized by abnormally low production of protein found in the vWF blood which is a key factor in the process of clotting a damaged blood vessel.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration (PRA-prcd)

PRA-prcd is inherited as an autosomal recessive disease. Degeneration of both rod and cone photoreceptor cells of the retina of PRA-prcd affected dogs usually occurs 3 to 5 years of age or later.

Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA), Chorodial Hypoplasia

In affected dogs, the choroid does not develop properly and is thinner than normal. This can result is vision loss and retinal detachment.
