“Looking into Sebaceous adentitis”

The article covers a very interesting SA discussion between Dr. Pedersen and Peter van der Lugt.

Some of the areas discussed

Is it autosomal recessive with partial penetrance  – no that is a Misconception 

How to prevent SA when breeding
Biopsy? Genetic marker? Or another approach?

External triggers
How much does that matter?
