    DefaultCNM/questions to ask the breeder

    I'm waiting on a litter to be born in the next few weeks and hoping for a new pup from it.
    Not knowing anything about PRA or CNM, what questions
    do I ask my breeder?
    WHAT exactly is CNM ?
    Help?

    You can read more about CNM here: http://www.labradorcnm.com/pages/site/0-frame_site.html

    There is a link for the white list with a search box into which you can enter the names of the parents and if they're clear, their names will come up.

    Not heard of PIV but would think it would be Permanent Identification Verified? I know OFA uses PI. It means the dog has either a tattoo or microchip.

    Regarding PRA. Be sure and ask your breeder if her dogs are Optigen tested. Results are A, B or C. B or C dogs should only be bred to an A to prevent PRA (blindness).

    Yearly cerf. is not enough.

    No actually its Normal, Carrier, Affected. The ABC is the old test, the one where my dogs ended up C's and they were actually reading the tests upside down since they in fact were Normals.

    True, but many still use the old names...A, B, C I hear it called that all the time still. But Yes, Normal/Clear is technically correct, though some still call it "A".

    So, "A" used to mean clear, but now there is a label called "Affected" and "C" used to be bad/carrier but now means clear? I'd be confused.

    I copied my response from the last PRA thread, as it answers this

    Although ABC is no longer used with the new test, in the old test B was a carrier (unaffected) and C was affected.

    With the new test, your dog will come back Clear/unaffected, Carrier/unaffected or Affected.
    The ABCs are still tossed around to some degree because many of those dogs were tested with the older test, so those were infact their results.
