Abstract

Canine hip dysplasia is a common, non-congenital, complex and hereditary disorder. It can inflict severe pain via secondary osteoarthritis and lead to euthanasia. An analogous disorder exists in humans. The genetic background of hip dysplasia in both species has remained ambiguous despite rigorous...

Abstract

Researchers who study the selection and breeding program criteria for military working dogs aim to help maximize the years of active duty service. Computed tomographic (CT) quantitative phenotyping has been previously described as a method for supporting these research studies. Funnel-shaped lumbar ...

Abstract

Two hip quality phenotypes - a hip-extended score assigned by a board certified radiologist and the PennHIP distraction index - were analyzed to estimate genetic parameters and to calculate estimated breeding values used for selecting replacement breeders. Radiographs obtained at 12-18 months of...

Abstract

Introduction: Current sports medicine textbooks suggest German Shepherd dogs leave a forelimb on the ground longer than other breeds for support because of angulated joints eliminating a true suspension phase (support trot). The objective of this study was to characterize the trot of healthy, adult ...

Abstract

One of the most popular dog breeds deployed by both the police and military has been the German Shepherd yet little is known about the morphology or body segment parameters of this breed. Such measures are essential for developing biomechanical models which, in turn, may guide clinicians in...

Abstract

AIM: To obtain provisional estimates of the heritability (h2) of passive laxity of the coxofemoral joints of a breeding colony of German Shepherd dogs, measured using the PennHIP distraction index (DI). METHODS: Records were obtained of the PennHIP DI of right and left hips of 195 German Shepherd ...

AbstractFull Text

An eight year old German shepherd bitch was presented with history of fever, head tilt and vomiting. Animal was unable to balance with signs of incoordination, falling, proprioceptive deficits and nystagmus. Hematological examination revealed severe neutrophilic leukocytosis. Biochemical parameters ...

Abstract

Canine hip dysplasia (CHD) is the most common hereditary skeletal disorder in dogs. To identify common alleles associated with CHD, we developed 37 informative single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within 13 quantitative trait loci (QTL) previously identified for German shepherd dogs. These SNPs...

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine relationship among the antibody of canine herpesvirus-1 (CHV-1), breed, gender and age in a total of 95 dogs (55 Anatolian Shepherd Dogs and 40 German Shepherd dogs). CHV-1 antibody was detected by using virus neutralization test with added complement (VNT),...
