Border Collie Collapse
« on: October 29, 2017, 07:28:57 PM »
Does anyone have any knowledge or experiences to share regarding Border Collie Collapse:

"Many veterinarians and dog owners may not know about Border Collie collapse, a form of exercise intolerance in Border Collies, Australian Kelpies, and related breeds in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Dogs with BCC are normal at rest, but after five to 15 minutes of strenuous exercise, they can develop incoordination and altered mentation."

I have a border collie with bcc.  Our vet college here and one in California and one in Minnesota ran tests and are studying it.  If you would like to chat you can email me at
