L-2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria (L-2-HGA)
L-2- hydroxyglutaric aciduria is a recessively inherited metabolic disorder in Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The disorder causes high levels of L-2-hydroxyglutaric acid which in turn result in neuromuscular symptoms such as seizures starting a young age. The mutation responsible for this disorder was identified by researchers at the Animal Health Trust in the United Kingdom. As with other recessive disease tests, Vetgen results will provide clear, carrier or affected status.
