Abstract

Junior hunting tests evaluate the innate predispositions of the young dogs for hunting. Junior pointing dogs (<2 years old) are evaluated in six competitions: scent, pointing, searching, speed, swimming and obedience. The aim of this study was to analyse the influence of selected factors on performance of the young individuals. Analysis was based on the results of the junior hunting tests of the pointing dog collected over years 2007-2015 by the Polish Hunting Association. The database included 2107 individuals belonging to 26 breeds, such as German shorthaired pointer, Weimaraner, Irish...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the prevalence of junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) in Italian German shorthaired pointers (GSHPs). Since January 2006, in collaboration with the Italian GSHP Club, the authors' laboratory (Vetogene Lab) had been allowed to perform a diagnostic test for JEB ...

Abstract

A 5 mo old female Akita and a 1 yr, 5 mo old male German shorthaired pointer were both evaluated for soft-tissue lesions characterized by rapidly expanding edema, erythema, and pain. Ultrasound was utilized to locate and sample fluid accumulations, and β-hemolytic Streptococcus was isolated from...
