Suspected PRA Case in Norway.

Latest Update: the dog has been retested and the second opinion is that there is no sign of PRA. Results will be submitted to the ECVA pannel in Holland for final decision in September.

Original message: It has recently come to our attention that there may be a new case of PRA in Norway. Our interest in this case is that the suspected dog is sired by one of our male: Avigdor Jupiter

Our understanding of the situation is that the suspected case has been tested and the examination has discovered that one of his eyes shows signs of retinal deterioration.

PRA is characterised by the bilateral degeneration of the retina, that is to say, it affects both eyes at the same time.

The current status is that this male will be retested in 6 months time. Until then, we cannot be sure that this is a case of PRA or if only one eye is affected, RA. This male is living in Norway and if after the test there is still doubt over the classification of the condition, the dog will return to his home country, Holland and be tested by the ECVA Panel. 

In the meantime all we can do is wait and see what comes from the re-test.

As more information becomes available, we will make it public.


We are proud to announce our 19th Champion: IR CH. AVIGDOR JARROD
