Foresight Health® Exercise Induced Collapse
Our Foresight Health® single test for Exercise Induced Collapse is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing.
Our DNA test results are accepted by the Kennel Club.
Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) is a neuromuscular disorder. After strenuous activity affected dogs will display hindlimb weakness and incoordination with usually a return to normal after around 30 minutes.
An autosomal recessive condition caused by a mutation in the DNM1 gene.
This test is also included in the following Foresight Health® breed packages:

If you need more than two tests it is often more cost-effective to order the relevant Foresight Health® breed package.
