American scientists have identified the gene that is responsible for the heart disease of subaortic stenosis (SAS) for the Newfoundland. This ground-breaking discovery makes it possible now to prove the exact diagnosis of an hereditary disposition of SAS through a simple test - either through a smear of the oral mucosa or EDTA-blood. This milestone in the Newfoundland breed allows us as breeders to breed with proven genetically SAS-free dogs finally!
