PRA in the Labrador Retriever update August 27, 2013

A recent article in the Purina Pro Club newsletter highlights the importance of both DNA and clinical eye exams to ensure the visual health of Labrador retrievers. Although the vast majority of PRA cases in the Labrador retriever are due to the prcd-PRA mutation, there is growing evidence that at least one other form of PRA occurs in the breed. This is just one reason that OptiGen strongly encourages owners to have their Labradors examined by veterinary ophthalmologists, even after prcd testing has been completed. OptiGen supports ongoing PRA research through Free DNA testing of pedigreed Labradors (and other breeds) that have been diagnosed with PRA by a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist.  For more information see OptiGen's Research page.
