PKD Testing

Published July 2004

Dr. Leslie Lyons, a geneticist at UC Davis, was present at the CFA Annual held in Florida in June 2004.

Dr. Lyons handed out DNA swabs that will be used to take a sample from your cat's cheek to perform a DNA tests for the PKD gene.

Hopefully the test will be available by the end of July. The cost has been tentatively set at about $50/test.

This is very welcome news to the cat breeding community. For more information read the article, Genetic Test for PKD Found!
