L - 2 hga

Post by charis1977 on Mon Feb 27 2012, 22:28

First topic message reminder :

Hi,

I have a staffy puppy aged 5 months old and we have been told she may have a genetic disorder called l 2 hga. She has muscle stiffness, tremors in her back legs and tiredness - she walks like a little old lady all the time! Just wondered if anyone else out there has a staffy with the same problem as there is info about dna testing to see if a dog has it but nothing about prognosis - the vet has no clue as there is no treatment available.

Thanks

so sorry to here about your pup.
and sorry you feel the forum has of been no help to you i also think all the comments have been taken the wrong way as in patronising but i can see how you could look at it in that way.
if i knew i could have avoided a situation like the one your in with just a little bit reserce into the breed which i always have when buying a new breed of dog ie health problems and conditions i would be a cit cynical when people were posting on the topic if i knew i could have avoided it.
morral of the story dont be so harsh on yourself you will have her for many years to come i dont think the condition has a great impact on length of life just quality of life.
be happy in the fact she now with a careing owner and not thown onto a dog shelter like a lot of status dog owners would do

ggggrrrrrrrr just the reason i hate byb angry

L2 HGA

I have a 13 month old staff called Paige diagnosed as having the genes so is infected. I just wondered if their is anyone else out their that could swop info. We were lucky enough to have insurance so have had a lot of work done. Unfortunately it has taken a long time for diagnosis as the 1 st test came back as a carrier but after the neurologist insisting something was wrong a second test confirmed her illness. I am managing her diet and giving her vitamins xx
Paige is my first dog and I love her so much its unbearable but we will get on with it xx

I'm so sorry to read this, I can't offer any advice as it isn't really anything I've had experience with.
