Genetic Testing for Eye Diseases in Dogs

There has been an explosion in our understanding of the gene mutations which cause inherited eye disease in dogs over the last 10 years, principally as a result of the work of researchers at the Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University in the USA and more recently the Animal Health Trust and Cambridge University in the UK.

These DNA mutations can now be tested for by Optigen, the commercial arm of the Baker Institute and the Animal Health Trust and tests provided by both these institutions can now be performed by a Melbourne based company Genetic Technologies Ltd to remove the need to send samples overseas.
