BACKGROUND Juvenile laryngeal paralysis-polyneuropathy in the Rottweiler is caused by a homozygous recessive mutation. It is a fatal disease characterized by juvenile-onset hind limb weakness, stridorous breathing, cataracts and microphthalmia. CONCLUSION Genetic testing results suggest 17.3% of all Rottweilers are carriers in Australia, whereas overseas testing suggests 24.2% carriers in the Black Russian Terrier population.
