Our DNA test for Curly Coat Dry Eye is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing.

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


Curly Coat Dry Eye (CCDE) causes dry eyes due to abnormal tear production which can lead to eye ulcers. It also causes frizzy hair as well as flaky skin, thickened footpads, and abnormal nails which can make standing and walking painful.

An autosomal recessive condition caused by a mutation in the FAM83H gene.


This test is also included in the following breed packages:

  • Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
  • Cavapoo
