CRD stands for choriorental dysplasia, and is a degree of CEA. It is important to remember that a dog does nor need to have CEA to have CRD. But a dog with CEA has CRD

CRD is detected as there is a lack of pigment on the side of the pupil. A blood vessel occurs in the choroid (chorioidea). Although this disease is congenital (and also hereditary) it is not progressive. It does not develop, and thus will not deteriorate over time. The only change that can occur is between an eye-screening at 7 to 8 weeks, to a new pigment change where it is no longer possible to see the defects in the dog. A dog that is born with a not very serious degree of CRD will thus not have vision problems.

Dogs with CRD can be used in breeding if the degree is small, and the dog on a general basis is a good candidate for breeding. To prevent offsprings from getting the disease, a CRD-free partner is recommended.

CRD står for chorioretinal dysplasi, og er en grad av CEA. Det er viktig å huske at en hund ikke nødvendigvis må ha eller har CEA for å ha CRD. Men en hund med CEA har CRD.

CRD oppdages ettersom det mangler pigment på siden av pupillen. Det oppstår et blodkar i årehinnen (chorioidea). Selvom denne sykdommen er medfødt (og også arvelig) er den ei progressiv. Den utvikler seg ikke, og vil dermed ikke forverres med tiden. Den eneste forandringen som kan forekomme er mellom en øyelysing ved 7 til 8 uker, til en ny pigmentforandring der det ikke lenger er mulig å se defektene hos hunden. En hund som er født med en lite alvorlig grad av CRD vil dermed ikke får synsproblemer.  

Hunder med CRD kan brukes i avl dersom graden er liten, og hunden på generelt basis er en god kandidat til avl. For å forhindre at avkom skal få sykdommen, anbefales en CRD-fri partner. 

A study shows that the prevalence of CRD in pups from normal x normal mating is 43%, normal x CRD mating is 53% and CRD x CRD matings is 83%

En studie viser at forekomsten av CRD hos valper etter foreldre hvor begge er fri for CRD er 43%, for valper etter foreldre hvor en er fri og den andre har CRD er på 53% og fra foreldre hvor begge har CRD er på 83%

10 dogs from Sweden have been diagnosed with CRD, 5 from Finland and 2 from Norway.

Then the litter has been to the vet and had their eyes examened. 
3 is clear (Mei Alucinor Willow Ufgood, Mei Alucinor Vohnkar and Mei Alucinor Elora Danan)
1 has slightly PPM that according to the vet will dissapear as the puppy grows (Mei Alucinor Madmartigan)
1 has PPM iris-iris that is visible with the naked eye and CRD CH, mild (Mei Alucinor Meegosh). This will not in any way be harmful for the dog, it will not have any affect on the sight. I have put an endorcement on him.

I have also decided to not breed from Rada anymore. She's been written over to her co-owner Jeanette. 

Weight of the day: 
Willow: 2,1
Vohnkar/Brownie: 1,8
Meegosh: 1,9
Elora: 1,85
Mad/Marty: 2

Damien is planning his first litter own his own. 
Mother of the litter will be Mirox Mystique Marronne La Belle. Father will be presented later. 
We expect her to go into season in February/March.

I'm planning a last litter on Cruella. 
This time I have 3 males that I can use. Don't want to get stucked again, like last time. 
The male will be presented later on. 
I expect her to go into season some time in May - August.

Maybe we this year can go to shows again. We can hope. 
It would be fun to show Mys, Webs, Piper and Cruella. I want to travell to Sweden and Denmark, and, who knows, maybe Finland.
