Polyneuropathy in the Leonberger

Leonberger with polyneuropathy

The inherited polyneuropathy (IPN) of Leonberger dogs, also called Leonberger polyneuropathy (LPN), represents a group of clinically similar, but genetically distinct diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Together with researchers from the University of Minnesota we identified the causative mutations for two different forms of LPN and offer genetic testing.
