Heart-Ultrasound

Already since 1999 I do regulary ultrasound scans on my cats for HCM and other heart diseases untill old age, at that time as one of the first. After visiting various cardiologists and veterinarians at the beginning, Dr. Robert Höpfner is now the cardiologist of my confidence since 2012. He is registered with Pawpeds, a member of the Collegicum Cardiologicum, and has completed the extensive CVIM training. It is important to me not only to scan the current breeding animals, but also their ancestors up to the age of 10. Here is a list of all test results so far:

Kidney-Ultrasound

Although I do not know of any Maine Coon with PKD, I have the kidneys of my cats scanned by ultrasound. Unlike HCM, PKD requires only a single ultrasound from the age of one year to rule out the disease. If the parents are free from PKD, the children don't need to be scanned anymore. Therefore, significantly fewer test results can be found here. The ultrasound is also performed by Dr. Robert Höpfner, who is certified for this by BPT e.V.

Hip-Xray

My cats are also examined on HD, with an X-ray of the hips which is evaluated by a specialist. In general, the recommendation is not to take cats with grade 1 out of breeding, but to mate them with HD-free partners. Hip ratings to date are listed here, sometimes duplicated if the recordings were rated by both my vet and a specialized agency (Pawpeds or OFA). Since these ratings always matched, my vet will do the rating in the future.

Kneecap-Examination

I have the examination for PL (patella luxation) carried out by my certified veterinarian. Mild cases (grade 1-2) do not affect the cats, more severe cases (grades 3-4) are noticeable without examination due to symptoms, as the cats visibly limp when the kneecap jumps out of the socket. In general, the recommendation is not to take grade 1 cats out of breeding, but to mate them with PL-free partners.

Genetic Tests

To list all genetic tests performed here individually would become too confusing. In summary, I can say that all my cats are negative for the HCM gene mutation. On the recessive gene mutations SMA, PKdef and bloodgroup B, which lead to diseases (if at all) only in homozygous expression, my cats are tested, and negative or maximum heterozygous. Of course, the latter will only be paired with a negative partner, so that no homozygous offspring can be born.

Infectious diseases

On contagious respiratory and diarrheal pathogens, I also test regularly, by throat swab for calici, herpes, chlamydia and mycoplasma, as well as fecal samples on Giardia to keep my cattery free from these diseases.
