Sorry to hear you are facing this, it must be difficult to find out your puppy is going to go blind.

Here is some research I found and how Progressive retinal atrophy affects the Poodle breed.


Progressive rod-cone degeneration (PRCD)

This is a disease with normal rod and cone cell development but late onset degeneration of the rod cells that progresses to the cone cells. It is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait and has been linked to the ninth canine chromosome.[2]

* Poodle - Night blindness by three to five years old, blind by five to seven years old.
