LCP~ Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease (aseptic or avascular necrosis of the femoral head) Avascular necrosis occurs when the bone that makes up the ball portion of the hip is damaged from lack of blood supply. 13.http://www.vetinfo.c...a/deleggcp.html PRA and Eye Problems~ Progressive retinal atrophy, or PRA as it is frequently termed, is a long recognized, hereditary, blinding disorder http://www.sheepdog....s/pra/back.html Patellas~ The patella normally moves up and down in a groove in the lower femur bone called the trochlear groove.

I went back and edited that post since it said that all these tests should be done. No, you are right. The things we are concerned with are the things that run in this breed. We don't need to do testing for things that are extremely rare unless they have shown up in the lines before. Some things cresteds just arent going to get. Our biggest issue is eye problems.This is more of just a general list so ppl will know what these things are and what the abbriviations mean
