Genetic Testing For Inherited Peripheral Neuropathy
Inventors: Peter Muir, Susannah Sample, John Svaren
Methods for diagnosing propensity to exhibit acquired peripheral neuropathy in dogs are described. The methods and kits test dogs for presence of a disease-associated genomic variant. Presence of the genomic variant indicates an increased likelihood of the dog developing an acquired peripheral neuropathy. This information can be used to guide preemptive clinical treatment of the animal for peripheral neuropathy and to choose dogs for selective breeding programs.
