please read through that thread and see if you can donate a sample of your dogs DNA to help us develop a test for this problem.

Has your dog been eye tested by a specialist?

In germany( the PSK) they are also trying to find the dna of the PRA and the cataract.
They ask for blood....maybe you can send them blood of your blind schnauzer???

they aren't asking for samples from dogs with PRA, they are asking for samples from dogs with PRAA (Constriction of the esophagus caused by a persistent right aortic arch (PRAA) )

maybe they need to update their information then??

Shame to also have donations of DNA split between 2 lots of reserch groups. In the UK we have the funds waiting for enough DNA samples to get working on this!
