Health Summary

warn icon

GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

And one variant that you should tell your vet about.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy, DCM1

warn icon

GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

Research indicates that this genetic variant is not likely to increase the risk that GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI will develop this condition.

Scientific Basis

Dogs with GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI’s breed have been included in research studies or have had follow-up by our experts that indicate that this genetic variant is not likely to increase the risk of GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI developing clinical disease.

Impact on Breeding

This genetic result should not be the primary factor in your breeding decisions.

What is Dilated Cardiomyopathy, DCM1?

DCM is the most common acquired heart disease of adult dogs. The heart has two heavily muscled ventricles that pump blood away from the heart. This disease causes progressive weakening of the ventricles by reducing the muscle mass, which causes the ventricles to dilate. Dilated ventricles do not contract and circulate oxygenated blood well, which eventually leads to heart failure.

ALT Activity

warn icon

GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI’s ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

What is ALT Activity?

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is a clinical tool that can be used by veterinarians to better monitor liver health. This result is not associated with liver disease. ALT is one of several values veterinarians measure on routine blood work to evaluate the liver. It is a naturally occurring enzyme located in liver cells that helps break down protein. When the liver is damaged or inflamed, ALT is released into the bloodstream.

A1e

GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI’s Haplogroup

This female lineage likely stems from some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs starting about 15,000 years ago. It seemed to be a fairly rare dog line for most of dog history until the past 300 years, when the lineage seemed to “explode” out and spread quickly. What really separates this group from the pack is its presence in Alaskan village dogs and Samoyeds. It is possible that this was an indigenous lineage brought to the Americas from Siberia when people were first starting to make that trip themselves! We see this lineage pop up in overwhelming numbers of Irish Wolfhounds, and it also occurs frequently in popular large breeds like Bernese Mountain Dogs, Saint Bernards and Great Danes. Shetland Sheepdogs are also common members of this maternal line, and we see it a lot in Boxers, too. Though it may be all mixed up with European dogs thanks to recent breeding events, its origins in the Americas makes it a very exciting lineage for sure!

The Paternal Haplotype reveals a dog’s deep ancestral lineage, stretching back thousands of years to the original domestication of dogs.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

Paternal Haplotype is determined by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since GCH CH Dykumos A Strident Sun RAE TT RATN CGCA CGCU TKI is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
