Our DNA test for Episodic Falling is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing.

The guideline turnaround time for single tests is approximately 10-12 working days after the swab arrives at the lab.

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.

  • Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
