Gordon Setter: Cerebellar degeneration
Cerebellar degeneration has been documented in the Gordon Setter as an autosomal recessive inherited disorder since at least the 1960s. It causes a progressive loss of coordination resulting in the hallmark ataxic gait characterized by dramatic overstepping, particularly obvious in the forelimbs. Onset of signs ranges from 6 months to 4 years of age and disease progression tends to be slow, occurring over several years.
Cystic Renal Dysplasia and Hepatic Fibrosis is a disease that can be fatal in Norwich Terrier puppies. A causative mutation was identified in a family of Norwich Terriers in the Anttila lab in Finland. The mutation is thought to be inherited as a recessive trait and careful breeding practices can be used to remove the prevalence of this disease.
