Our Health Testing
PRA- Progressive Retinal Atrophy
PRA is a disease found in Labrador Retrievers that causes the retina of the eye to degenerate slowly over time. The result is declining vision and eventual blindness.
EIC- Exercise Induced Collapse
EIC affected dogs often begin to exhibit leg weakness followed by a complete collapse after just 5 to 15 minutes of strenuous activity. In extreme cases dogs affected by EIC can die.
CNM- Centronuclear Myopathy
CNM is a muscular disease found in Labrador Retrievers that causes an awkward gait and a decreased tolerance for exercise due to muscle weakness. Puppies that are affected will never recover from this disabling disease.
Hip and elbow dysplasia is an abnormal hip or elbow joint structure that is common in Labrador Retrievers. This causes severe pain with excercise and greatly affects the quality of life in a Labrador.
CERF- Canine Eye Registration Foundation
CERF is an organization with a goal of elimination of heritable eye disease in purebred dogs.
To receive CERF clearance, a Labrador's eyes must be examined by a Board Certified
Veterinary Opthalmologist and determined to be free of disease.
