Furthermore, PRA (progressive retinal atrophy), a retinal disease, which destroys the photoreceptors of the eye and blocks the cat.
For both recessive hereditary diseases, however, DNA tests are available, which allows responsible breeders through selective intervention to limit the spread or only to breed with healthy animals.
For the comparatively rare amyloidosis, a congenital, non-treatable defect of the protein metabolism, which usually ends with acute kidney failure, neither test methods are available at this time nor is the inheritance course clarified. A careful breeder, however, does not conceal the occurrence so that it can react accordingly and no buyer has to fear.
