Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE)


Neonatal encephalopathy (NE) or Neonatal encephalopathy with seizures (NEwS) is a recessive developmental brain disease. Affected pups exhibit extreme weakness, and those that survive the first week generally develop progressively worse ataxia, or inability to move properly. This is often accompanied by severe seizures. None have survived to 7 weeks of age.

Standard Poodle

A (CLEAR/NORMAL): These dogs have two copies of the normal gene and will neither develop NE nor pass this mutation to their offspring.

B (CARRIER/NOT AFFECTED): These dogs have one copy of the normal gene and one copy of the mutation associated with this disease. They will not develop NE but will, if bred, pass the mutation to 50% of its offspring, on average.

C (AT RISK/AFFECTED): These dogs have two copies of the mutation associated with this disease and which results in ataxia and poor survival beyond 7 weeks of age.
