Mate my dog (dominant disease)

Transmission of a dominant inherited disease

Knowing the genetic status of its stud dogs helps to :

  • Protect its kennel
  • Prevent an inherited disease by adapting matings

By using ANTAGENE selection DNA tests, you can know the genetic status of your stud dogs regarding an inherited disease


3 possible genetic status for a dominant disease :

Normal Homozygous (clear) : Doesn’t develop the disease and doesn’t transmit the mutation

Heterozygous (affected) : Will develop the disease and transmits the mutation to 50% of its offspring

Mutated Homozygous (affected) : Will develop the disease and transmits it to 100% of its offspring


The consequences for reproduction are (statistical data) :



ANTAGENE advices :

Heterozygous dogs shouldn’t be used for reproduction purposes
