tested poodles

From: Mildred Bartlett, USA

Dear fellow breeders,
Like most breeders of Miniature Poodles, I waited impatiently for a test that would
give us some help in breeding dogs that would be free from PRA. One of the most
important things that a test needed to do was to give us the possibility of using
carriers, or even dogs that might be affected, in a carefully thought out breeding
program. It just seemed vital that we not be forced to give up valuable breeding stock
from lack of knowledge.

Now thanks to Optigen we finally have a test available and it is up to all of us to make
the most use of it. I know that the test seems to be just one more expense on top of
everything else we have invested in our litters, but compared to the price of one
puppy or one stud fee, the price is do-able.

The next thing that needs to be done is to make available to other breeders the
results of those tests. Of course, it’s very rewarding to list our ”A” dogs, and it’s
much harder to list the “B’s” and “C’s”. However, we all need to know about them
too. The important thing is to be able to use those dogs wisely. They do not need to be

My first, and only, PRA dog came as a terrible shock. We all think that it just can’t happen.
I was in tears, scared,disappointed and frustrated. Like others in the same situation, I was tempted to quit breeding. Then I got stubborn. I started by studying the “the enemy (PRA)”. My “war” plan included a lot of reading, pedigree research, and using a very talented and caring Ophthalmologist. I did ERG’s on all puppies in my litters (not just the show puppies). I did yearly eye checks, of course. Kept records, and prayed (a lot). Then when I had a chance I sent blood from my afflicted bitch to Cornell University for their PRA research.

With the advent of Optigen’s prcdPRA test, I did three things. First I sent a form to Cornell to see if the bitch I submitted blood from had the prcd form of PRA. She in fact did, and I began testing my “family” of dogs. The results for dogs tested (all the key dogs), gave me 9 “A’s” and 1“B” (one of my “A” bitches bred to a “B” dog). I also took the next step of listing my dogs on the only public list that was then available (

Would I attempt to breed past PRA again? I don’t know, I’m getting a little old for that much worry, but now with testing and yes, a lot of luck too, IT CAN BE DONE !!!

So here’s what I started with:

While we must continue to CERF our dogs, since there are many other things to be checked
for, the DNA test is a great leap forward.
