Health Summary

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser" has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser" inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser" has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser" has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser" is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser"’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.

A1b

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser"’s Haplogroup

This female lineage was very likely one of the original lineages in the wolves that were first domesticated into dogs in Central Asia about 15,000 years ago. Since then, the lineage has been very successful and travelled the globe! Dogs from this group are found in ancient Bronze Age fossils in the Middle East and southern Europe. By the end of the Bronze Age, it became exceedingly common in Europe. These dogs later became many of the dogs that started some of today's most popular breeds, like German Shepherds, Pugs, Whippets, English Sheepdogs and Miniature Schnauzers. During the period of European colonization, the lineage became even more widespread as European dogs followed their owners to far-flung places like South America and Oceania. It's now found in many popular breeds as well as village dogs across the world!

A289

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser"’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1b haplogroup, we have detected this haplotype most commonly in Standard Schnauzers, Rat Terriers, and Bullmastiffs.

A1b is the most common haplogroup found in German Shepherds.

F

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser"’s Haplogroup

F is the odd duck in the family of domestic dog male lineages. This paternal lineage is genetically closer to wolves, foxes, and jackals than to other dogs. This indicates that it came into the dog population after dogs were originally domesticated, when one particularly attractive male wolf mated with a female dog, over 6,000 years ago. Since then, these dogs found their way into Africa and Mongolia. It hasn't been found outside those areas except in Basenjis. Basenjis are an iconic African breed, that first made its way to the USA in the early 20th century when a handful of individuals were imported from the Congo. The Basenji is an ancient breed which is distantly related to other dog breeds (most of which are European or Asian), and it has the earliest separation date from all other breed populations. Unsurprisingly, the F lineage has also been found in African village dogs, as well as, surprisingly, some samples from Mongolia. The fact the lineage is found in two very distant places is evidence that it entered the dog population many thousands of years ago.

H9

Waterwheel Creek's Set To Stun "Phaser"’s Haplotype

A member of the F haplogroup, this haplotype is found in Basenjis and village dogs throughout Africa.
