Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
As an interim measure until the official register provided by the Kennel Club is fully up and running, the SEISC has decided to offer an opportunity for owners to post their recent PRA rcd4 DNA test results.
This will be on our PRA rcd4 page.
This is available to all owners worldwide not just SEISC members and will be in a similar format to that already used by the Kennel Club.
For further details please see the Club website www.seisc.co.uk.
Listing will be available sometime today - slight kink in my "html" !!
The AHT has clear and detailed information on their site concerning PRA in the Irish Setter. Melinda, I think you may find most answers to your questions here:
Ann, I am getting my dogs tested for various reasons:
1) The sire of my brood bitch went blind aged 9 years and was proven 'affected' by PRA rcd4. I wish to know the status of my dogs and have an idea how this may or may not affect the dogs I have bred.
2) I wish to help find out how widespread the problem is within the breed population and hereby help any research into the condition.
I am fortunate that as yet I have none that have been tested 'affected'.
Have waited for both results before posting.
Wyldfire Cuchulainn for Bluestack ( Grayrigge Ewan by Romarne x Brookesands Maranello from Wyldfire) - CARRIER
Rionore Ice Lord over Bluestack ( Reddins Pause at Magiconkers x Covarney Bewitched Between Rionore) - AFFECTED
So... good and bad, much like many others. Wanted to know, and glad I do, so we can keep an eye open as time goes by. Hopefully we'll get lucky and have no problems. Funnily enough we haven't had the oldies tested, and I don't know whether I want to at the moment.
I have received my result for my Miss Bridget - Millcroft Moon Dreamer (IMP UK) - CLEAR. (S: Millcroft Moon Pirate; D: Millcroft Moondaisy). I am so excited!!
I am still waiting on my Clacy's result.....
Hi Gillian, I have sent you my result for Bridget today too. Can you please repeat your e-mail address. I sent mine to firstname.lastname@example.org is this correct?
