Cardiac Evaluation Congenital heart disease in dogs is a malformation of the heart or great vessels. The lesions characterizing congenital heart defects are present at birth and may develop more fully during perinatal and growth periods. Many congenital heart defects are thought to be genetically transmitted from parents to offspring; however, the exact modes of inheritance have not been precisely determined for all cardiovascular malformations. 

Hip Dysplasia Canine Hip Dysplasia typically develops because of an abnormally developed hip joint but can also be caused by cartilage damage from a traumatic fracture.

Patellar Luxation The patella, or kneecap, is part of the stifle joint (knee). In patellar luxation, the kneecap luxates, or pops out of place, either in a medial or lateral position. 

Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)Degenerative myelopathy (DM) is an inherited neurologic disorder of dogs characterized by gradual muscle wasting and loss of coordination typically beginning in the hind limbs. How we test-genetically

Canine Multifocal Retinopathy 1 (CMR1)  Canine multifocal retinopathy 1 is an inherited eye disease characterized by areas of retinal detachment. The disease does not typically lead to blindness or vision deficits. How we test-genetically

Hyperuricosuria (HUU)Hyperuricosuria is an inherited disorder characterized by elevated levels of uric acid in the urine that can lead to the formation of bladder/kidney stones. How we test-genetically

Juvenile Hereditary Cataract (JHC)  form of cataracts that commonly cause blindness in dogs by clouding the lens of the eye and affecting both eyes symmetrically. How we test-genetically

Cystinuria Type 3(CY3) variant 2/variant 3 is an inherited disease affecting kidney function in dogs. Dogs with cystinuria are deficient of a specific protein the kidneys use to transport cystine. How we test-genetically
