MYO5A

Lavender foal syndrome

 

The disease causes several neurological issues, leading to paddling movement, abnormal eye movements and severe muscle spasms. Lavender foal syndrome is usually lethal soon after birth, or cause for euthanasia.

MYO5A is a risk gene test that is recommended for stallions and mares before breeding. Pairing two horses that carry the same harmful gene can cause miscarriages and/or deaths. By doing the MYO5A risk gene test, you can make sure that your horse is not carrying this gene.

We will deliver the results within 2 to 3 weeks after receiving the sample.

The price for MYO5A gene test is 75 € (VAT inclunded)
