An inherited deafness clinically documented among purebred dogs of the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed. Affected dogs appear to show normal hearing early in post-natal development, but ultimately these dogs lose their hearing, often with complete loss by 1 year of age.
Ridgeback owners have requested access to an interim association test previously offered by ProjectDog, and an interim option has been created through a collaborative data sharing effort with Embark Veterinary.
If your dog has a standard Embark test profile, you have the option to order interim EOAD testing with Projectdog.
PLEASE NOTE: Embark is NOT in a position to offer any interim testing at this time. This testing option is ONLY available at ProjectDog. Please do not contact Embark Veterinary to request this test.
