Collie Health Panel

Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA)

Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA), also known as choroidal hypoplasia, is a heritable disorder that can result in abnormal development of inner structures of the eye. This genetic variant is associated with CEA in multiple breeds.

Cyclic Neutropenia (Gray Collie Syndrome)

Cyclic neutropenia, also known as Gray Collie Syndrome, is a heritable disorder that affects Collies. The condition causes episodes of low neutrophil counts, resulting in recurrent infections, stunted growth and shortened life span.

Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

Degenerative myelopathy (DM) is an inherited neurologic disorder of dogs characterized by gradual muscle wasting and loss of coordination typically beginning in the hind limbs. Testing is most appropriate for those breeds in which the clinical disease has been associated with the SOD1 allele.

Multidrug Sensitivity (MDR1)

Multidrug Sensitivity is caused by a deletion in the ABCB1 gene, also known as the multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) gene, and is characterized by neurotoxicity following the use of certain common drugs. Dogs with two copies of MDR1 will exhibit multidrug sensitivity. Some dogs with 1 copy of MDR1 may also exhibit multidrug sensitivity.

Rod-Cone Dysplasia Type 2 (rcd2)

Rod-cone dysplasia type 2 (rcd2) is a type of early-onset retinal degeneration that affects collie breeds and typically lead to blindness.
