Recent information on Research and Tests for PRA.
The reason why we recommend the Norwegian test is that the research-team has worked with the blood tests for years now. It was difficult to find the mutation on the right gene, and they know exactly where to look for the 100% right test result.
The English form for the mutation found for PRA in Shetland Sheepdogs is now available at the Norwegian Shetland Sheepdog Club's website: www.nssk.no.
