Neonatal Encephalopathy

Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE) is a fatal disease of the brain in newborn Standard Poodles. Affected pups are weak, uncoordinated, and mentally dull from birth. If they survive the first few days, their growth may be stunted. When normal puppies in the litter start walking, some pups with NE cannot stand at all and others struggle to their feet with jerky steps, falling frequently. Seizures develop in most at 4-5 weeks, and the puppies die or are euthanized before they reach weaning age.

VetNostic Laboratories’ genetic test for NE can reliably identify dogs that are either clear, or possess one or two copies of the NE causing gene. This clear, carrier, or affected result can help breeders determine which animals to include in their breeding program.
