Our DNA test for Episodic Falling 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.


Episodic Falling (EF) is a muscle condition which causes episodes, often following exercise, of varying length and severity. Muscles, mostly of the limbs, will spasm which can cause collapse.

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