DNA Profile
DNA profile Your dogs own gene fingerprint Every dog has it's own distinct set of genes. Can be used to identify dogs, prove parentage 
or check if potential mates are closely related.

DISEASES

Canine Hyperuricosuria Causes production of high levels of uric acid in urine, can lead to bladder stones and less frequently kidney stones.

Canine Multifocal Retinopathy CMR1 (Mastiff/Bull Breeds Type) Causes raised lesions to form on the retina altering the appearance of the eye.

Cobalamin Malabsorption : Cubilin Deficiency (Border Collie type) Failure to absorb Vitamin B12 from the intestine.

Collie Eye Anomaly/Choroidal Hypoplasia

Cystinuria (SLC3A1) Australian Cattle Dog Type

Degenerative Myelopathy Progressive disease of the spinal cord in older dogs causing loss of use of the rear limbs.

Goniodysgenesis and Glaucoma (Border Collie)

Ivermectin Sensitivity MDR1 Multidrug resistance, including antiparastic agents like Ivermectin and antidiarrheal Imodeium.

Myontonia Congenita CLCN1 (Cattle Dog Type)

Myontonia Hereditaria (Cattle Dog Type)

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis - Border Collie Pathological degenerative changes occur in the central nervous system resulting in neurological impairment and early death.

Primary Lens Luxation Lens is partially or fully dislocated from the threads holding it in position in the eye.

Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration (prcd) of the retina causing progressive vision loss - PRA

Raine Syndrome Dental Hypomineralisation (Border Collie)

Trapped Neutrophil Syndrome (Border Collie Type)

TRAITS

A Locus (Fawn/Sable; Tri/Tan Points)

B Locus Brown Coat Colour Profile

D (Dilute) Locus - A mutation on the gene responsible for melanin containing genes causing improper distribution and washed out colour.

E Locus (Cream/Red/Yellow)

E Locus e2

E Locus e3

Em (MC1R) Locus - Melanistic Mask

K Locus (Ddominant Black)

Long Hair Gene Long hair is recessive so short coat dogs can pass the gene on without knowing it is present when bred to another dog also hiding the gene.

Natural Bob Tail A dominant gene that can be variable with nearly full length tails while others may have virtually no tail. It's possible two copies of the gene is lethal in utero. This could cause two carriers to produce 25% affect offspring thus reduced litter size.
