    Unhappy Will owners really post EIC results in OFA?

    I was looking up some info for another person in OFA and decided to run a report for PRA results. We have a somewhat similar problem with PRA in Labradors as with EIC in that test results are not automatically posted by the testing company. I was really stunned at the results of the report. Only 242 dogs have had results submitted to OFA and the test has been out for years. Of those, only 24 dogs are displayed as carriers and there are NO reports for affected dogs at all!

    It seems that the DNA testing is like a lot of other areas of dogs - people only want to brag about their good stuff and hide the less glamourous. If we are going to deal with these genetic disorders, we certainly have to be more open with our information than it looks like we have been. I hope the trend will change with EIC reporting.

    Results are already coming back. I just got a call from my vet. Jive is a carrier....didn't even realize that it was a possibility....just goes to show what ticking time bombs we have.

    He was CNM clear.

    We might be surprised.

    My experience so far is that people are more upfront about EIC than other ailments.

    Except in the case of top stud dogs. They remain mum.

    Maybe…… I think we are at the point we are at because people take chances on breedings and some will continue and some will continue to take a chance on the dogs they produce. Sad, but I am afraid it will be true because too many people believe this will affect the quality of the breeding stock

    I think that a LOT of people will test..... but will they make their results public?? That was my concern.

    I was surprised at how few people used OFA to post results for PRA. Sure, it costs $15, but I thought a lot would submit to make it public. Heck, there are 90 PRA records in LabraData, from which 22 are carriers (almost as many as reported in OFA) and even one affected dog listed with his pedigree. Perhaps it is the cost of reporting that is an issue. People hate getting unpleasant results and then feel insulted they have to pay to make it public
