BNAt-Bandara's Neonatal Ataxia

Vetgen’s test is based on the work presented by O’Brien et al at the 2010 Advances in Canine and Feline Genomics and Inherited Disease. The test is for a mutation in the GRM1 gene which was shown to be causative for this Coton de Tulear specific form of neonatal ataxia. The disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.
