Details
Ataxia seems to come in breed-related, or breed-specific types. It is characterized by uncoordinated movements, and can have a range of other movement-related symptoms. According to researchers (Forman et al. 2013) The CAPN1 form of this disease manifests as a slowly progressing pelvic limb incoordination, with an onset usually at 2 to 9 months of age. The observed age at onset for Parson Russell Terrier ranged between 7-12 months. As the disease progresses a characteristic ?dancing? or ?prancing? gait is displayed, especially affecting the pelvic limbs.
