As of mid-summer 2008, based on the tests we’ve completed at OptiGen, here is a summary of we know about PRA in the golden retriever:

* 1% are (genetically) AFFECTED with prcd-PRA
* 26% are CARRIERS of prcd-PRA
* 73% are NORMAL for prcd-PRA
* All of the prcd- AFFECTED (genetically) dogs are from either the USA or Canada
* 82% of the CARRIERS are from the USA & Canada. The remaining 18% are from multiple countries in Europe and the UK

We should also note that golden retrievers are prone to "Retinal atrophy". It is an eye disorder that causes blindness; entropion; epilepsy; osteochondrosis.

Oh and by the way, golden retrievers are also highly susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia. These are conditions that can be triggered or exacerbated by too-rapid growth of puppies. golden retrievers tend to put on weight easily and a combination of a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise is needed to keep the dog slim and fit.
