Health Summary

Dazzling Queen Luna is at increased risk for one genetic health condition.

Intervertebral Disc Disease (Type I)

Dazzling Queen Luna inherited one copy of the variant we tested

How to interpret this result

Dazzling Queen Luna has one copy of an FGF4 retrogene on chromosome 12 and is at increased risk for Type I IVDD. Dazzling Queen Luna would also be expected to have an intermediate chondrodystrophic phenotype (slightly short legs relative to body length). Please consult with your veterinarian to discuss preventative and monitoring measures for Dazzling Queen Luna.

What is Intervertebral Disc Disease (Type I)?

Chondrodystrophy (CDDY) refers to the relative proportions between dogs' legs and body. Dogs with chondrodystrophy have shorter legs and a longer body. An extreme example of this is a Dachshund or Corgi. Type I Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) refers to a health condition affecting the discs that act as cushions between vertebrae. With Type I IVDD, affected dogs can have a disc event where it ruptures or herniates towards the spinal cord. The pressure on the spinal cord causes neurologic symptoms.
