New ENM DNA test available
The DNA test concerning the ENM study was done by identifying two gene variations that are close to the suspect ENM gene.
Recently, during research by Dr. Mandigers and Prof. Dr. Leegwater, the actual mutated gene responsible for causing ENM was found. A more precise test has therefore been developed and is now available.
This new test has been used to process all blood samples that were offered in June. The results show that in a single case, the outcome can differ from the previous test.
Some carriers now appear to be free. Also, a few carriers from free parents have emerged from the retested dogs. The still available DNA material of the parent animals is now tested again.
If you have received a non-logical result from your dog or will soon receive it, we would like to hear from you. We will contact the researchers in Utrecht.

When there will be new information, VHNK will inform you by the website www.kooikerhondje.nl or the official VHNK facebook page.
