Cerebellar ataxia is a category of often severe neural disorders that cause a loss of physial coordination. This variant of the disease, known as SDCA2, occurs in the Belgian Shepherd. It is caused by a recessive mutation to the gene ATP1B2.
Affected puppies begin presenting with ataxic gait (a loss of coordination while walking) at about four weeks of age. Further symptoms can include pacing, circling, central blindness and seizures. The disease progresses rapidly, and euthanasia is typically necessary within weeks.
