Working dog CA (CA panel)

Summary

Panels are groups of tests that are often chosen together. This panel tests for two genetic variants most strongly associated with CA in working Kelpies and Border Collies (show and working lines).

Dogs with CA can show head tremors, problems with balance and exaggerated or erratic leg movements. These signs get more severe with time.

The CA: VMP1 genetic variant is associated with later onset CA. The CA: LINGO3 variant is associated with early onset CA, where signs start at 4-16 weeks of age.

Positive results from either of the two tests in this panel do not guarantee that a dog will develop CA but they are the best available guide.

A third test, CA: NUP153, has been removed from this panel as we work to determine its usefulness. This test is still available separately.

These tests were developed based on research at the Faculty of Veterinary Science at University of Sydney.

Tests can be in the list more than once when the gene in question has more than one effect. It is OK to select the same test once or more than once, the price is the same.
