RD/OSD Test

Department:

Inventor:


The Inherited Retinal Dysplasia (RD)/OculoSkeletal Dysplasia (OSD) test is done on a small sample of blood obtained by a veterinarian or on a cheek swab. The test will identify dogs as being Normal, Carrier, or Affected with OSD. It is expected that many, but not all, carriers will show significant retinal dysplasia-retinal folding.
