OTHER GENETIC DISORDERS
EIC ( Exercise Induced Collapse), a rare recessive gene must be present in both parents resulting in 25% of the offspring will be affected. After about 15 minutes of heavy exercise such as hunting, field trials, or hunt test the dog collapses. This collapse can happen to a pet playing fetch in the "back yard". EIC can be fatal.
CNM (Centronuclear Myopathy) Another rare genetic ailment
caused by a recessive gene in both parents. At 4-5 months of age
the puppy's muscles stop growing; however the skeleton continues to grow. The young pup becomes totally spastic and must be put down. Sometimes a mild case exists and a Lab will survive; but surely a heart rendering situation.
