Saluki encephalopathy is a neurological disorder caused by Succinic Semialdehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency (SSADHD) and clinically characterized by early onset of seizures and abnormal behaviors. This condition is also known as central nervous system status spongiosus in Saluki dogs (SSSD).

Congenital Ichthyosis in Labrador Retrievers

Congenital ichthyosis is a skin condition in which the outer layer of the skin does not form properly and results in scaling. The condition often progresses to large patches of thickened, black, scaly skin. A recently identified allele is associated with congenital ichthyosis in the Labrador Retriever and is referred to as congenital ichthyosis type 3 (ICH3).

Rod-Cone Dysplasia Type 2 (rcd2)

Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG) in the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a type of glaucoma that typically progresses gradually without obvious signs of pain. A genetic inversion disrupting the ADAMTS17 gene is associated with POAG in the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, which is characterized by elevated intraocular pressure and lens subluxation, and can lead to vision loss at a later stage of the disease.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (rcd4-PRA)

Progressive retinal atrophy rod-cone degeneration 4 (rcd4-PRA) is a heritable condition characterized by late-onset degeneration of photoreceptor cells in the retina, leading to loss of vision and blindness.
