Owner's Name and Address: edna f schenck & paul d schenck
Breed: Labrador Retriever Date of Birth: December 17, 2001 Gender: Female
Optigen Accession #: 15-135
Test Performed: prcd Mutation Test for PRA
Sample Type: Swab
Test Results: Genotype of your dog is NORMAL/CLEAR. Risk for developing prcd-PRA: This dog will never develop the prcd form of PRA (progressive rod-cone degeneration form of Progressive Retinal Atrophy). prcd-PRA is the most prevalent form of PRA in most breeds of dog but there are other forms of PRA that could occur in any breed. DNA testing does not replace the value of routine eye exams. Significance for breeding: Genetically Normal/Clear dogs can be bred to any dog and will produce no pups affected with the prcd form of PRA.
This interpretation is based on the test result of the DNA test for the specific mutation identified as causing the prcd form of PRA in Labrador Retrievers as of the date on this report.
