This page contains the listing of Scottish Terriers that have been diagnosed with Cerebellar Abiotrophy and voluntarily released to the STCA by their owners. Because the CA registry is open - it is important for visitors to understand what the registry represents. Please review the following three CA Reference documents (also avalible in the Scottie Health Library under CA Reference Documents).
The following three documents will open in separate windows so you can easily read and return to this page.
- Cerebellar Abiotrophy: Its cause and diagnosis
- Autosomal Recessive Inheritance
- Using Relative Risk Pedigree Analysis and Open Health Registries to Plan Matings.
Further references, including a number of background documents about the CA open registry, can be found in the Scottie Health Library ion the Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) section.
Note: 5/4/2011. The Health committee has been informed that Dr. Bell has retired from doing diagnosis. In addition, we will be adding a updated process for adding dogs to the CA registry. This process is being developed by the Health committee and will be published soon.
The following is a message from Dr. Bell.
The publication of the STCA cerebellar abiotrophy (CA) open database brings with it great hopes for the future, but also great responsibility. There are two important points to remember:
- The emotional response to seeing that your Scottish Terrier is related to a CA affected or carrier dog is to not breed it. Quality Scottish Terriers should be bred. This list is intended to assist breeders with making breeding decisions to reduce the risk of producing CA affected dogs and reduce CA carrier risk. Removing quality Scottish Terriers from breeding based only on their relationship to affected or carrier dogs will restrict the genetic diversity of the breed, and lose quality genes that cannot be replaced. Other breeds have gone down this road with devastating effects to their gene pool. Please review “Using Relative Risk Pedigree Analysis and Open Health Registries to Plan Matings” and the article “Breeding Strategies for the Management of Genetic Disorders”.
- Putting pedigrees of CA affected dogs together to attempt to predict ancestral carriers is called witch-hunting. If this is done, you will identify prolific, quality, ancestral stud dogs. These dogs will be identified because their matings to bitches of diverse pedigree backgrounds link the pedigrees together. With an old, widespread autosomal recessive defective gene, it is just as likely that these prolific stud dogs were not carriers of CA (unless they produced CA affected dogs). Trying to blame ancestors is a futile and wasted effort. You need to concentrate on the breeding decisions with today’s dogs to move the breed forward. Please review “A look at pedigree analysis and the closest common ancestor”.

* All hyperlinks under the Name column are for records in the STCA Pedigree Search database. These links will open in a new window.
Several names are listed without a link to the Pedigree Search database. In these cases, the pedigree information is either unavailable or incomplete at this time. A new link will be added as soon as the data is available in the Pedigree Search database.
The following guidelines have been established for this listing of CA Affected dogs:
"All listed dogs have gone through the official diagnostic process for CA established by Dr. Jerold Bell, Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Alexander de Lahunta (retired), Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. The dog information has been released to the STCA by their owners or breeders. Historically, no dog of any breed diagnosed with CA by Dr. Bell or Dr. de Lahunta has been found to not have CA on further testing or necropsy. In the rare event that a dog's CA status ever changes, it will be posted to this list."
- This database list has been provided as a method to help breeders make informed decisions.
- Breeding strategies identified in the Reference section can be used to help breeders make these informed decisions.
