Lafora Genetics: a pictorial guide
Lafora Disease in Miniature Wirehaired Dachshunds is caused by an Autosomal Recessive genetic mutation. In this guide Green (Clear) and Orange (Carrier) dogs both appear clinically normal and will never display the symptoms of Lafora Disease. Red (Affected) dogs will display the symptoms of Lafora Disease.
Orange and Red dogs must only be mated with Green dogs otherwise they will produce puppies (Red) that suffer from Lafora Disease.
