Canine Neuromuscular (EIC)

Affected dogs typically become weak in the hind limbs and collapse after 5-20 minutes of high intensity exercise, such as in field trials or upland game hunting, and in some cases simple fetch and retrieves. This inherited disease is most commonly found in Labrador Retrievers.
