Hereditary juvenile neuronal muscular atrophy in Swedish Lapland dogs - the present position

Svensk Veterinartidning 38(15): 162-164

Hereditary juvenile neuronal muscular atrophy in Swedish Lapland dogs - the present position

The disease, which has an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance, appeared in Swedish Lapland dogs in the late 1960s, and a test mating programme began in 1973 in an attempt to eradicate the disorder. At the end of 1983, 260 and 297 non-carriers had been identified by virtue of siring at least 11 normal pups when mated with a known heterozygote.
