Genetic Testing Recommendations
The Weimaraner Club of Victoria fully supports and recommends to all Weimaraner Breeders that before you contemplate in mating your Bitch that she has a “Weimaraner Genetic Test”.
This test is made up of three specific components which will indicate any mutations in the bitch ie. Hyperuricosuria (HUU), Hypomyelination (HYPM) and Spinal Dysraphism (SD).
Hypomyelination in Weimaraners leads to tremors during puppyhood that often resolve by 3-4 months of age.
Spinal dysraphism (SD) in Weimaraner dogs is a genetic disorder present at birth that results from faulty embryonic development, leading to an abnormal gait as well as weakness and lack of coordination in the rear legs.
Hyperuricosuria is an inherited disorder characterized by elevated levels of uric acid in the urine that can lead to the formation of bladder/kidney stones.
