Abstract

Background: Canine DNA-testing has become an important tool in purebred dog breeding and many breeders use genetic testing results when planning their breeding strategies. In addition, information obtained from testing of hundreds dogs in one breed gives valuable information about the breed-wide...

Abstract

Congenital vertebral malformations (CVM) are common in brachycephalic 'screw-tailed' dogs; they can be associated with neurological deficits and a genetic predisposition has been suggested. The purpose of this study was to evaluate radiography as a screening method for congenital thoracic vertebral ...

Abstract

Patellar luxation is one of the more common orthopaedic diseases of dogs and is relatively frequent in some toy breeds, including the Chihuahua and Bichon Frise. Using data provided by the Swedish Kennel Club, genetic parameters, including heritability, were estimated for patellar luxation in the...

Abstract

Knowledge on the genetic epidemiology of disorders in the dog population has implications for both veterinary medicine and sustainable breeding. Limited data on frequencies of genetic disease variants across breeds exists, and the disease heritage of mixed breed dogs remains poorly explored to...

Abstract

This article discussed the clinical aspects, prevalence, and risk factors of brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) in brachycephalic dog breeds and highlights the two different methods to assess airway function in these breeds, a functional grading system which is based on listening to...

Abstract

Background: The merle colour in dogs (merle: blackbird) is caused by a retrotransposon insertion in the SILV gene, resulting in malfunction in the eumelanin producing pigment cells. In homozygous (MM) individuals congenital auditory and ophthalmologic disorders are common, therefore the mating of...

Abstract

Genetic diseases occur in breeds used for law enforcement. As important team members, dogs are expected to operate at peak performance for several years and are significant investments for both the initial purchase and extensive, specialized training. Previous studies have not focused on causes for ...

Abstract

A 3-year-old, female Greater Swiss Mountain dog developed a hemoperitoneum following an exploratory laparotomy and ovariohysterectomy. Platelet count, PT, APTT, and plasma von Willebrand factor antigen concentration were within RIs. A buccal mucosal bleeding time (BMBT) was prolonged. Given the...

Abstract

Animals that have inherited a mutant gene from their parents (father and/or mother) may acquire hereditary diseases. Most mutations are autosomal recessive. Usually, hereditary diseases go unnoticed until symptoms arise. The objective of this study is to screen four canine hereditary diseases in...
