I posted a question about retinal folds about 3 months ago and got some great replies. Long story short....I have a 26 month old lab, went to have eye test done as to get a cerf number. Was told he had retinal fold in right eye. Was instructed to have DNA test done through OPTIGEN to make sure he didnt posses the bad genefor RD/OSD. Results came back that he was a carrier but there is no chance for blindness or the dwarf gene. So I knew cerf would probably give him BREEDER OPTION number. Well, I was surprised when they sent my check back and told me he was not eleigible for cerf because of retinal dysplasia--folds. Well I knew he had that before the vet instructed me to have the DNA test done. I surely would not have spent the money if i had known it was already a done deal. Anyone else have experience with this. Is this a done deal that i cant appeal?
