As most of you will be aware since the discovery of POAG within PBGVs a lot of work has gone into ensuring that DNA from affected dogs and their siblings / offspring has been submitted to the Animal Health Trust. Through years of hard work, hundreds of eye tests and the submission of DNA the BGV Club are very pleased to confirm that Dr Cathryn Mellersh at the Animal Health Trust has identified and carried out validation experiments on the the mutation responsible for POAG in the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen.

The Animal Health Trust is now commencing work to develop a DNA test, based on this mutation which will be available in early 2015. Further communication on the next steps for PBGV owners will be available in due course.

Cathryn Mellersh and the Health Sub-Committee of The BGV Club would like to thank everyone who has played their part in this success story, particularly the owners who have submitted eye tests and sent in DNA to contribute towards this research and of course, Prof. Peter Bedford and Mrs Vivien Phillips who have been at the forefront of things since 1996.

A full statement will be issued by Prof. Peter Bedford shortly.

For further information please contact Mrs Vivien Phillips, Health Co-ordinator (Eyes) on 01442 851225 / vphillips@btinternet.com.
