Progressive Retinal Atrophy - Progressive rod-cone degeneration (PRA-PRCD)

Progressive rod-cone degeneration (prcd) is a late-onset, autosomal recessive photoreceptor degeneration found in many dog breeds. It’s one of several, genetically specific, inherited diseases grouped under the more general progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) name. This is very important to note because a dog can be clear of the PRCD mutation, but another of the PRA mutations may be present.

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