Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
In most cases, this disease is also hereditary. It is caused by a de-generation and loss of retinal tissue. Night blindness is usually the first sign of PRA. There is no treatment. The only way to prevent the spread of the disease is by proper testing of breeding stock to ensure that affected dogs are not used. Eye evaluations are done by certified ophthalmologists.
