"Rocky" has big shoes to fill but I am confident that he will exceed our expectations. An exciting aspect of "Rocky" is that he has normal-eyes based upon the ophthalmologist examination as well as a Optigen DNA test classified Rocky is a normal-eyed carrier. What that means is that all of his puppies will have normal-eyed classification and will have no issues with their eyes especially when he breeds with "Pebbles" which is a normal-eyed dominated dog. This is an exciting classification and could only be better if he had a normal-eyed dominate classification.
This test eliminates DR Farms necessity to have the puppies visit a ophthalmologist. The result is that all of the puppies will be either normal-eyed carrier or normal-eyed dominate only for the CEA gene.
