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. 

Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is an inherited condition that affects the muscles of the heart. ARVC is associated with sudden cardiac death and congestive heart failure.

Aortic Stenosis (AS) is a condition in which there is a partial obstruction to the flow of blood as it leaves the left side of the heart (the left ventricle) through the main blood vessel (the aorta) that carries blood to the rest of the body. Ruled out by echocardiogram

Cardiomyopathy is a heart condition that can cause sudden death in boxers. The condition primarily consists of an electrical conduction disorder that causes the heart to beat erratically, or to have an arrhythmia in the form of a ventricular premature contraction, due to a loss of the normal contracting abilities of the ventricles. out by yearly 24 hour holter

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

Cystinuria  in dogs is indicated by the presence of cystine stones in the kidney, bladder or ureter. Failure by the kidneys to reabsorb amino acids results in the formation of cystine crystals and sometimes stones in the urine which can lead to blockage of the urethra. How we test-genetically
