SAY NO TO NH

Don’t let a lethal genetic condition like NH go unnoticed.

Neuropathic Hydrocephalus

Caused by a recessive mutation that affects Angus and Angus-influenced cattle, Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH) is a lethal genetic disorder.

Affected calves are born dead with an extremely large cranium, with little or no brain material or spinal cord. As some losses occur in embryonic or fetal gestation, this genetic defect can go misdiagnosed or unnoticed.


Test for NH with added confidence.

  • Determine NH-carrier or NH-free animals—at Zoetis we test carriers twice for added assurance that genotypes are accurately diagnosed
  • Reduce costs and potential death loss associated with NH
  • Customers are advised to check with their respective breed association for recognized laboratory service providers, testing policies and procedures
