About The Breed

Cerebellar Ataxia

Cerebellar ataxia is a rare and inheritable neurological disease that has been identified in a number of smooth-haired Hungarian Vizslas it is an aggressive and progressive neurological condition which affects gait and coordination from around 2-3 months of age.

There is ‘no treatment’ and affected dogs are ‘euthanased’ at the advanced stages of the disease.

The genetic mutation responsible has been discovered by researchers at the Kennel Club Genetic Centre at the Animal Health Trust, in association with the neurology team at the Royal Veterinary College London

A test has been available since 2016 and involves a simple cheek swab it can be ordered here Breeders should now be testing for this condition

Dogs will be given a result of either Affected, Carrier or Clear.

Affected dogs should not be bred from. Carrier dogs should only be bred to clear dogs.

Clear x Clear will produce 100% clear offspring Clear x Carrier will produce some clear and some carrier offspring but no dog will be affected.

Here at TyCwmdarran Kennels no puppy’s we produce will be affected due to the mating being planned to ensure we never pair two dogs together that carrier the faulty gene.

“The carrier rate for this condition is estimated at approximately 1 in every 100 smooth-haired Hungarian Vizsla’s
