(From Optigen site - FAQ- Do puppies from 2 OptiGen-tested normal parents need to be tested?)

As long as there were absolutely no surprises or accidents with this breeding, and there were no mix-ups within or among litters, only puppies that will be used for breeding should be tested. However, OptiGen will not certify the status of untested pups.)

"ANOTHER WONDERFUL RESULT !!!"

We had another 5 homebred cockers blood-tested for the April OptiGen clinic, and are very proud to announce that these five parti-colours, like our tested homebred solid's have all come back as:

Genotype A1

(see below for information about the test results)

The Parti-Colours we tested were:

Charbonnel Kiss 'N' Cuddle - Blue Bitch

Charbonnel Girls 'N' Pearls - Black & White Ticked Bitch

And 3 February born blue sons of Sh. Ch. Lindridge Star Turn & Charbonnel Pick 'N' Mix

These dog pups are all micro-chipped, obviously, but as yet have not been allocated their names as I cannot decide who to keep !!!!!! These pups are all spoken for.

***Test Results: Pattern/Genotype A1

 Risk Group: Normal

 Risk for developing prcd form of PRA: Pattern A1 dogs of your breed are
statistically normal for prcd-PRA and are not expected to develop prcd-PRA
or this disease or pass it to offspring. No known Pattern A1 dog has
developed prcd-PRA or produced prcd-PRA-affected offspring, and no known
prcd-PRA-affected dog has tested Pattern A1. There is a low theoretical
chance that a Pattern A1 dog could have a false negative result and
therefore be a carrier (risk is less than 0.5%) or even be affected (risk is
less than 0.0025%). So far, the only inherited PRA disease known in this
breed is the prcd form of PRA.

Significance  for breeding: Pattern A1 dogs can be bred to any dog and, with
at least 99.5% confidence, will not produce pups affected by the prcd form
of PRA.
