It also has a reproductive function in the male by providing a passage for SPERM.Drosophila Proteins: Proteins that originate from insect species belonging to the genus DROSOPHILA. The proteins from the most intensely studied species of Drosophila, DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER, are the subject of much interest in the area of MORPHOGENESIS and development.Down Syndrome: A chromosome disorder associated either with an extra chromosome 21 or an effective trisomy for chromosome 21. Clinical manifestations include hypotonia, short stature, brachycephaly, upslanting palpebral fissures, epicanthus, Brushfield spots on the iris, protruding tongue, small ears, short, broad hands, fifth finger clinodactyly, Simian crease, and moderate to severe INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY. Cardiac and gastrointestinal malformations, a marked increase in the incidence of LEUKEMIA, and the early onset of ALZHEIMER DISEASE are also associated with this condition. Pathologic features include the development of NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES in neurons and the deposition of AMYLOID BETA-PROTEIN, similar to the pathology of ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

A case of canine salmonellosis due to Salmonella infantis. (1/4708)

A 7-year-old male dog kept outdoors manifested severe watery diarrhea with generalized weakness. Salmonella Infantis was isolated from a fecal sample and the dog recovered soon after medication with ampicillin, to which the isolate was highly sensitive. The present case was diagnosed as S. Infantis infection. Due to the importance of Salmonella in public health, soil samples were collected from the garden where the dog was kept and were examined for Salmonella, Some of them were positive for S. Infantis, however, no Salmonella was isolated from any soil samples collected after thorough disinfection of the surrounded environment.  (+info)

Unusual case of foreign body-induced struvite urolithiasis in a dog. (2/4708)

A 6-year-old, castrated male dog was presented because of inappropriate urination and hematuria. Radiographs indicated a bladder stone with a sewing needle at its center. The urolith was removed and diagnosed as predominantly struvite, most likely a result of the foreign body and a urinary tract infection.  (+info)

Primary hypoadrenocorticism in a dog receiving glucocorticoid supplementation. (3/4708)

A 5-year-old, spayed, female husky-Labrador retriever cross was diagnosed with primary hypoadrenocorticism, an uncommon endocrine disorder caused by a deficiency of glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid hormones. Subtle clinical signs and previous treatment with exogenous glucocorticoid drugs required an adrenocorticotropic hormone stimulation test to confirm the diagnosis.  (+info)

A comparative chemical and histochemical study of the chondrodystrophoid and nonchondrodystrophoid canine intervertebral disc. (4/4708)

The chemical composition of the intervertebral disc of 9-month-old chondrodystrophoid and nonchondrodystrophoid dogs was studied for collagen, noncollagenous protein and glycosaminoglycan. Content of these substances differed significantly between breeds. The differences were most marked in the nucleus pulposus; the noncollagenous protein content of the nonchondrodystrophoid breed was higher than in that of the chondrodystrophoid dogs. The total nitrogen value of the nonchondrodystrophoid nuclei pulposi was less than that of the corresponding chondrodystrophoid discs mainly because of the high collagen content of the latter discs. Histochemically, it was found that the nuclei pulposi of the nonchondrodystrophoid breed contains larger amounts of glycosaminoglycan than in the discs of the chondrodystrophoid breeds.  (+info)

Oligodendroglial vacuolar degeneration in the bilateral motor cortices and astrocytosis in epileptic beagle dogs. (5/4708)

We performed a pathologic examination of the brains of three dogs in an epileptic beagle colony. Histologically, all the cases had diffuse astrocytosis in the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia as well as the hippocampus, whereas they showed acute nerve cell change in the hippocampus and some other areas of the cerebrum. One of these animals showed laminar myelin pallor associated with the presence of many vacuoles in the IV to VI layers of the bilateral motor cortices. Most of the vacuoles contained fine granules stained with luxol-fast-blue stain. Ultrastructural examination revealed that some oligodendrocytes and perineuronal satellite oligodendrocytes in the bilateral cerebral motor cortices of the two affected dogs had many vacuoles surrounded by myelin-like lamellar structures. These findings suggest a possibility that astrocytosis in the cerebrum and vacuolar degeneration of oligodendrocytes in the cerebral motor cortex may be, at least in part, related to the occurrence or development of seizures.  (+info)

Hemorrhagic enteritis associated with Clostridium perfringens type A in a dog. (6/4708)

A female Shetland sheep dog died suddenly with hemorrhagic diarrhea and vomitting, and was examined pathologically and microbiologically. Gross pathological change was restricted to the intestinal tract. The intestine contained watery, blood-stained fluid. Histopathologically, the principal intestinal lesion was superficial mucosal hemorrhagic necrosis at the jejunoileum. Many Gram-positive bacilli were found adhering to the necrotic mucosal surface in parts of the intestinal tract. Clostridium perfringens in pure culture were isolated from jejunal contents by anaerobic culture. These results suggested that the typical lesion of this case coincided with canine hemorrhagic enteritis and enterotoxemia due to C. perfringens infection could be the cause of sudden death.  (+info)

Duration of antibodies against 24 kd protein of Rhipicephalus sanguineus extract in dogs infested with the adult ticks. (7/4708)

A 24 kd protein from Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Rs24p) which was common to larvae, nymphs, male and female whole body and salivary gland extract of males and female was detected specifically in the serum from dogs after repeated infestation with adult R. sanguineus. The duration of antibodies against Rs24p in dogs infested with adults was examined by Western blotting analysis. Anti-Rs24p antibody was detected in two of 4 dogs during the period of 40 days in the first infestation. In the second infestation, all dogs showed positive reaction against Rs24p, but the duration of the antibodies varied greatly among the animals.  (+info)

Amplification of the c-yes oncogene in canine mammary tumors. (8/4708)

Genomic DNAs of 14 mammary tumors were analyzed by Southern blot hybridization using a human c-yes-1 oncogene probe. The amplification was successful in half of the cases (7 adenocarcinomas). The degree of amplification was approximately 4-fold, and a high proportion was seen in malignant tumors. In addition, DNA polymorphism was detected in two adenocarcinomas.  (+info)

Cocker Spaniels are dogs belonging to two breeds of the spaniel dog type: the American Cocker Spaniel and the English Cocker Spaniel, both of which are commonly called simply Cocker Spaniel in their countries of origin. In the early 20th century, Cocker Spaniels also included small hunting Spaniels. Cocker Spaniels were originally bred as hunting dogs in the United Kingdom, with the term cocker deriving from their use to hunt the Eurasian woodcock. When the breed was brought to the United States, it was bred to a different standard, which enabled it to specialize in hunting the American woodcock. Further physical changes were bred into the cocker in the United States during the early part of the 20th century. Spaniels were first mentioned in the 14th century by Gaston III of Foix-Béarn in his work the Livre de Chasse. The "cocking" or "cocker spaniel" was a type of field or land spaniel in the 19th century. Prior to 1901, Cocker Spaniels were only separated from Field Spaniels and Springer ...

Objective - To develop an in vivo method to measure inclination angles and motion of the sacroiliac joint using CT, in two performance dog breeds, of which only one (the German Shepherd dog) has a predilection for diseases that cause lumbosacral region pain. Correlations were assessed in German Shepherd dogs between the presence of lumbosacral region pain and changes in these variables. Animals - The study was comprised of 10 working German Shepherd dogs and 12 racing Greyhounds without history or evidence of lumbosacral region pain or neurological abnormalities, and 6 German Shepherd dogs with histories and examination findings consistent with lumbosacral region pain. Procedures - CT scans were performed in flexed, neutral and extended positions. Lines placed on flexed and extended volume rendered images were used to measure motion of the ilium relative to the sacrum. Inclination angles (joint angle from a reference line placed in the dorsal plane) of the synovial and ligamentous joint ...
One of the most alarming fats about a boxer dog is its shorter life-span, which is due to many factors including anxiety, fear, feeling of loneliness and certain diseases to which the boxer dog is prone. The average life span of a boxer dog is approximately 10-12 years. The major disease which threatens the life of a boxer dog is Cancer, and according to an estimate, almost half of the boxer dog population between 8- 10 years in the world suffer from cancer. Nervous break-down or mental chaos is also a great risk for the life of the boxer dog.. Similarly, some other wounds or injuries that are not healed in time or left un-treated can become harmful for boxer dog as well. The genetic influence of transmitting the germs of certain diseases by the parent to newly bred boxer dog also plays a significant role in shortening the life-span of a boxer dog. In view of these all, the boxer dog lovers are always curious to find the solution for the longevity of their boxer dog. The best solution is to ...

Origin: Despite their small size, the Cocker Spaniel is still an active Sporting breed that needs daily exercise. Regular brushing and a trim every few months helps keep the coat free of mats. Cockers are intelligent, gentle dogs that thrive as part of a family. The Cocker Spaniel dates back as far as the 14th century. The breed originated from the English Cocker Spaniels, which were brought to the United States. The Spaniels were bred down in size and given the name American Cocker Spaniels, officially called simply the "Cocker Spaniel" by the AKC. The American Cocker Spaniel is more popular than the original English Cocker Spaniel, who are slightly different in appearance, with longer muzzles and larger bodies. The Cocker Spaniel is a hunting-gun dog able to work in difficult terrain in both wet and dry land. Excellent at flushing and retrieving game with a gentle mouth. They listen to commands well. The name "Cocker" comes from the woodcock, a game bird the dogs were known for flushing. Some ...

Panda German Shepherds" is a term coined for German Shepherd Dogs that exhibit a rare genetic mutation that causes white spotting the traditionally non-white marked breed of German Shepherd Dogs. This frequently debated color is often dismissed as a result of crossbreeding. However, new research has proven insightful of the true origin of this new marking. The first ever recorded Panda was a result of breeding two German Shepherd dogs by Cindy Whitaker. Brain vom Wölper Löwen SCHH III, the sire, was registered with the German Shepherd Club Of Germany. The dam, Cynthia Madchen Alspach, was registered with the American Kennel Club. Lewcinkas Franka von Phenom was born with white markings, and was the sole puppy in the litter to have such markings. Repeat breedings did not create any more panda puppies. Her breeder had the puppy DNA Tested to see if she was mixed bred. Surprisingly enough, her results came back as full offspring to both dam and sire. Her AKC DNA number is V119021. Frankas hips ...
Please judge the Shih Tzu by the standard, and not the group it is placed in. Frequently, judges ask me if Shih Tzu are getting too big. I always ask what they mean by big? Shih Tzu are frequently tall and leggy (a fault) BUT many, many of them have little or no body and are too fine boned. Breeders and judges should remember that most everywhere else in the world the Shih Tzu in NOT in the Toy Group. The Shih Tzu has not been bred down from some other combination of breeds. The Shih Tzu should be the third heaviest breed in the toy group, right behind the Pug, and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Many years ago, we always talked about the Shih Tzu being "surprisingly heavy for its size". The standard says the ideal weight for a Shih Tzu should be 9 to 16 lbs. The majority of dogs being shown today are between 8 and 11 pounds. My answer to those asking are they are not getting too big is NO. Most old time breeders would like to see Shih Tzu, regardless of sex, in the 12 to 15 pound range. In ...
A few months ago, the United Kennel Club added nine breeds, to its registry, bringing its total to 160. Last month, the American Kennel Club announced the addition of the American Kennel Club announced the addition of the American Eskimo to its miscellaneous group, the first step towards official recognition as an AKC breed. The new UKC breeds are Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, Canaan Dog, English Toy Spaniel, Finnish Spitz, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Manchester Terrier, Polish Owczarek Nizinny, Tibetan Spaniel and Shiba, all but the Nizziny are recognized by the AKC, some of them for many years, and AKCs newest, the American Eskimo, has been a UKC breed for a long time. Both registries seem to be in race to add new breeds to their lists, a race that some critics say is an effort to increase the treasuries of both organizations. This rush, along with the apparent whimsical assignment of breed status in some cases, an increase in breed-specific laws in the last few years, and the call by animal ...
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is active indoors so they can do well in an apartment as well as a house. They are highly intelligent, short dogs that make great watch dogs. They are cattle herders so they may tend to try to herd children, adults and other dogs. They can be aggressive with other dogs, especially male on male. They like children but do not like to be teased. As a reminder, never leave a child unsupervised with a puppy or dog.. *Approximate Adult Size. The approximate adult size (two years old or older) of the male Pembroke Welsh Corgi is 10 to 12 inches to the withers (highest point of the shoulder) and 25 to 30 pounds. The female ranges from 10 to 12 inches to the withers and 24 to 28 pounds.. *Special Health Considerations. Most dog breeds have certain inherited health problems associated with that specific breed and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is no exception. Be on the look out for back problems, epilepsy, hereditary eye disease and obesity. This disease list is an informative ...
Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration (PRA-prcd) is inherited as an autosomal recessive disease. Degeneration of both rod and cone photoreceptor cells of the retina of PRA-prcd affected dogs usually occurs 3 to 5 years of age or later. Affected dogs initially experience night blindness and loss of peripheral vision. As the disease progresses, complete blindness will occur in time. Different breeds and individual dogs may experience variation in the age and rate of the disease progression.. DDC Veterinary is offering DNA Testing for PRA-prcd (PRCD c.5G,A). Breeders have an accurate, convenient, and affordable tool to help them avoid producing PRA-prcd affected offspring and significantly reduce the gene frequency in future generations.. This mutation affects several breeds like the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Poodle and Yorkshire Terrier. To see if this test is available for your breed, use the Order Canine ...
Published: 17 Aug 2017 , Last Updated: 17 Aug 2017 13:28:59 A new VetCompass study has revealed fascinating insights into the demography and common disorders of German Shepherd Dogs under primary veterinary care in the UK.. The German Shepherd Dog (GSD) is one of the most popular dog breeds worldwide. However, concerns for the health and welfare of the breed have been widely aired and there is evidence that breed numbers are now declining in the UK. This study aimed to report on the demography and mortality of GSDs in the UK, and to rank the prevalence of the most common disorders recorded in this breed.. The VetCompass Programme collects clinical data on dogs under primary veterinary care in the UK. This study included all VetCompass dogs under veterinary care during 2013.. GSDs dropped from 3.5% of the annual birth cohort in 2005 to 2.2% in 2013.. The median longevity of GSDs was 10.3 years (IQR 8.0-12.1). The most common causes of death were musculoskeletal disorder (16.3%) and inability to ...

The most effective way to prevent canine infectious respiratory disease is to avoid exposing your pet to other dogs, in particular, puppies. If this is not a possibility, vaccines are available. The injectable Bordetella vaccine and the Bordetella vaccine that is squirted into the nostrils are the most common vaccinations. Strict hygiene should be practiced in kennels and other possible infected areas. Be sure to clean any kennel or area with a disinfectant before use. In addition, food and water bowls should be cleaned frequently to avoid viruses. CIRD can also be prevented with frequent checkups with your veterinarian. Also keep in mind that CIRD viruses may be inside of your pet laying dormant. Even if the viruses are present, they may not exhibit any signs or symptoms for some time. Another important thing to remember is that the disease is best treated in the earliest stages. The sooner you catch the condition, the better the chances for a speedy and successful recovery. ...
A dry delivery is when the Shih Tzu puppys protective sac breaks inside the birth canal. A dry Shih Tzu puppy delivery can either a head-first or breech (rear quarters first). A Shih Tzu puppy breech birth is a normal canine birth position; however, a dry breech delivery can be dangerous to a Shih Tzu puppy. The Shih Tzu puppy is presented entirely or partially free of a sac. If the Shih Tzu puppys legs get stuck delivery progress is impeded. The Shih Tzu puppys head may turn back blocking passage or even its body turned sideways in the birth canal. Under these circumstances the Shih Tzu dam cannot deliver without assistance. Cooking oil may be substituted in an emergency to use as a lubricant ...

The German Shepherd Dog is a large breed known for its protective personality. Learn more about the German Shepherd with pictures, facts and more on petMD. Our Official Website - The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family, as well as one of six recognized Basset breeds in France. The Basset is a scent hound that was originally bred for the purpose of hunting hare. Their sense of smell for tracking is second only to that of the Bloodhound.[1] The name Basset is derived from the French word bas, meaning "low", with the attenuating suffix -et meaning "small", together meaning "rather low". Basset Hounds are usually bi-colours or tricolors of standard hound colouration.. In this article, "Basset" (with a capital B) is used to distinguish the modern breed from other basset-type dogs.. Bassets are large, short, solid and long, with curved saber tails held high over their long backs. An adult dog weighs between 20 and 35 kilograms (44 and 77 lb). This breed, relative to size, is heavier-boned than any other.[2] This breed, like its ancestor the Bloodhound, has a hanging skin ...

The primary care needed by your dog is that it needs to be brushed regularly so that you can remove any dead hairs from its coat. This also makes them look good because it brings out the lustrous hair and makes them shine and look polished. The dog sheds throughout the year, and needs to be brushed about two to four times a week all throughout the year too. If you do not brush them regularly, you will find that they shed hair all the time, and you will end up finding fur balls all around the house in stuck inside your vacuum cleaner too.. In contrast to regular brushing required by the black German Shepherds, they do not need constant of regular bathing. You only need to bathe them about once a month. If you bathe them too often, their skin will become flaky, irritated and dry. You can bathe them after exercise sessions, or on other times about once a month and that will be enough. It should be noted that due to its thick double coat, the German Shepherd Dog will not dry very easily. To dry ...

Like people, Shih Tzu needs to be healthy to enjoy life. Our Shih Tzu is our friend, companion and often our guardian, but since they are also totally dependent on us for their well-being, it is our responsibility to look after them properly. One of the most prevalent diseases in dogs, which includes the Shih Tzu, these days, is one that also affects humans. This condition is obesity. A fat Shih Tzu is an unhealthy Shih Tzu and is likely to suffer from arthritis and heart failure. Try to keep in mind that in the wild dogs eat fresh meat that they have killed themselves. They also eat certain types of grass and may eat wild fruits like berries if these grow in their natural habitat. This is not to say, however, that you should begin feeding your Shih Tzu these same things to avoid obesity. The best diet for a Shih Tzu is a commercially prepared diet especially for dogs with treats of vegetables, fruits and cooked chicken. Milk, custard and cake are the worst things you can give your grown Shih ...
Panosteitis is most common in large breed dogs between 6 and 18 months of age. Occasionally, middle-aged German Shepherds will have a bout of panosteitis. It affects dogs worldwide and has been recognized and studied since the 1950 s. Male dogs are much more likely to get panosteitis then females. There is a higher incidence in several breeds including German Shepherds, Great Danes, Doberman Pinschers, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Rottweilers, and Basset Hounds. What causes panosteitis?. The cause of panosteitis is currently unknown. There have been many theories as to the cause of this disease. Originally, it was suspected that the disease was caused by a bacterial infection. However, several investigational studies failed to isolate any bacteria. In addition, the disease responds poorly to antibiotics, further suggesting a cause other than bacterial.. Other studies showed that if bone marrow from affected dogs was injected into the bones of healthy dogs, the healthy dogs would ...
Most people of all dogs with the characteristic porcine snout called the Bull Terrier. Meanwhile, dog handlers, will usually result in the term Pit Bull (Pit Bull). This title covers dogs with similar physical characteristics and includes, American Staffordshire Terrier (Amstaff), Bull Terrier, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Canary dogs, Italian Cane Corso, animal or any mixture of them. However, not only ordinary people have little knowledge of dog breeding, but also lawyers in many countries do not bother such nuances and equate to any bull terrier dog, if one of her parents belonged to the above species. The fact that the genetic similarity of these dogs is visually difficult to determine "who is who". In other words, not only here but also in other countries of dogs with a square head and powerful body called the Bull Terrier.

For your beloved but nosy chap, it is important to keep all dangerous objects away from him. Even if you keep them in cupboard or drawers, it can be unsafe. It is better to properly lock the doors of such cabinets. If you deem anything which can be swallowed by your boxer dog, it is better to place it high where it cannot reach. If you suspect, your boxer dog has inhaled or gulped something, you need to check immediately if something is lost or hidden from its place. That thing might be on the way to its stomach and which can ultimately destroy the intestinal function. First symptom in such case can outcome as vomiting some clear fluid from boxer dogs mouth.. Normally, the transit time for the swallowed object to reach the stomach through the gastro-intestinal tract is approximately between 10 and 24 hours. The symptoms of stomach and intestinal blockage in such boxer dog will start to appear within 24 hours. This time may vary depending upon the severity of a case.. ...
Avg Size of male: Height: 24 - 26 inches, Weight: 75 - 95 pounds. Brief History on German Shepherd Origin. While the original roots of this breed can be traced back as far as 7th century A.D. as a mountain sheepdog found in Germany, the true origination of the GSD we know today can be credited to Captain Max von Stephanitz. Sometime between the late 1800s and the early 1900s, Captain Max was the one who developed the German Shepherd into an all-purpose, useful working dog. Stories suggest that he used local shepherd dogs of the long-haired, short-haired, and wire-haired varieties. Which he had found in such places as Bavaria, Thurginia, and Wurtemburg. That combination resulted in the modern-day GSD we all know and love. The success of the German shepherd is attributed to an organization called the Verein fur Deutsche Scharferhunde SV. This group was working on developing a type of herding dog that would also be courageous, athletic, and intelligent. The dog became quite popular thanks to ...

The Golden Retriever is a breed that was developed out of necessity. In both Scotland and England bird hunting was a popular sport among the wealthy and something the lower classes depended on for food. It was this wild-fowling that led to a need for a dog skilled in retrieval. The original Goldens are believed to have descended from a yellow retriever purchased by the Scottish Lord Tweedmouth. This dog (named Nous) was used as a hunting dog and eventually bred to a Tweed Water Spaniel in an effort to create a smaller hunting dog. It is said that the puppies that resulted from this first breeding are the puppies that gave rise to every Golden Retriever we have today! This happened through a process of selective breeding with more Tweed Spaniels, Wavy-coated Retrievers, and Red Setters. By 1913, the Golden Retriever was officially recognized as its own breed in Great Britain and by 1925, they were registered as a breed with the AKC. It wouldnt be until the 1930s and 1940s, however, that the ...

The influence of genetic mutations on the development of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in Doberman pinschers is the focus of a new study.. A potentially fatal heart disease, dilated cardiomyopathy affects nearly half of all Doberman pinschers, and strikes this breed more than any other. The inherited disorder can cause sudden death, or can eventually lead to congestive heart failure.. Conducted by researchers at the University of Florida (UF) College of Veterinary Medicine[1], the trial will follow 300 dogs over their lifetime, with screening tests, owner surveys, and outcomes recorded for each dog.. In addition, the study will evaluate the effect of environmental factors, diet, dietary supplements, and the amount and type of daily activity on the expression of this disease.. So far, almost 200 dogs have been enrolled in the trial. The team expects to reach full enrollment by February 2019.. "Although there are two known genetic mutations associated with DCM, dogs without either mutation have ...

The Doberman Pinscher was developed in nineteenth-century Germany by Frederick Louis Doberman, who was a tax collector as well as being the local dog catcher and he wanted a strong breed that would help him with his work. He had easy access to numerous breeds of dogs - many of which do not exist today - and the breed he developed became known as the Doberman Pinscher. The breed combines the color, shape and strength of the Rottweiler and Great Dane, the agility and determination of the German Pinscher, the speed of the Greyhound, the tenacity of various Terriers and the sleek coat and figure of the Manchester Terrier. It is said that Schnauzers, German Shepherds, German Shorthaired Pointers and Weimaraners were also added to the mix. ...
During the middle of the nineteenth century, regular sporting events took place along the River Aire in which terriers pursued the large river rats that inhabited the area. A terrier was judged on its ability to locate a "live" hole in the riverbank and then, after the rat was driven from its hole by a ferret brought along for that purpose, the terrier would pursue the rat through water until it could make a kill. As these events became more popular, demand arose for a terrier that could excel in this activity. One such terrier was developed through judicious crossings of the Black-and-Tan Terrier and Bull and Terrier dogs popular at the time with the Otter Hound. The result was a long-legged fellow that would soon develop into the dog we recognize today as the Airedale Terrier. This character was too big to "go to ground" in the manner of the smaller working terriers; however, it was good at everything else expected of a sporting terrier, and it was particularly adept at water work. This big ...

Cardiomyopathy is a term used to describe a condition which occurs to the heart muscle, when one or more diseases cause inflammation and scarring. This inflammation and scarring causes an enlargement of the heart itself, and the chambers within the heart dilate and become less efficient in supplying the body and organs with blood. The end result of a dog suffering from this condition is that the heart muscle will eventually weaken and the dog will develop congestive heart failure, and will die. The articles that the author used in researching this condition stated that the reason dogs develop this condition is unknown, but assumed to be genetic. Exactly how it is inherited is not yet documented, however, the disease appears to be very breed specific. There are some mixed breeds of dogs that have been diagnosed with this condition, but it is extremely rare. The breeds of dog that have documented histories of cardiomyopathy are: Boxers, Cocker Spaniels, Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherd Dogs, ...
This is a common congenital cardiac defect in dogs, with a higher incidence in Cavalier King Charles spaniels, German shepherd dogs, collies, poodles, Pomeranians, Irish settlers, Shetland sheepdogs and cocker spaniels. Twice as many females are affected as males. The majority of dogs progress into left-sided congestive failure within a few years of life. It also occurs in the cat, but few survive more than a few weeks. ...

Although these are the three types of poodles, some poodle breeders will claim to breed what is known as a "Tiny Toy" or "Teacup" poodle. Essentially this is a poodle that has been bred so small it is less than 4 pounds when fully grown. Although it may sound cute to own a pocket dog, take into consideration how fragile and unhealthy these dogs would be. Avoid purchasing any type of poodle that is not recognized by kennel clubs.. Know the breed standard Even if you dont plan on showing your poodle, it is imperative that you know what the dogs appearance, temperament, and life expectancy is. Research as much as you can about the poodle by reading books, articles, magazines, websites, and first hand experiences of poodle owners. You need to know what to look for in a poodle, as well as both the good and bad side when it comes to owning one.. Once you have fully researched the dog, you can then make a list of questions you can ask poodle breeders. You will also be able to compare the sire and dam ...
Since the condition is normally inherited, affected dogs should be sterilized. Dogs that pass on this defect or are definite carriers should not be used for breeding unless there is known exposure of the dam to disease or toxins during the critical period for this particular litter. Cleft lip and palate is thought to be an inherited trait in many breeds, but the exact mode of inheritance is only known in a few breeds. In Brittany Spaniels it is said to be autosomal recessive trait; in Westies it has been shown to be polygenic and does not have a single gene mode of inheritance. In the English and French bulldog, pointer, and Shih Tzu, the trait may be autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance. In a 2000 survey, Boston terrier breeders reported 15% of their puppies have either a cleft lip or palate. Other breeds affected are cocker spaniel, dachshund, German shepherd, Labrador retriever, miniature schnauzer, and Pekingese. George A. Padgett, DVM, of Michigan State University says there are ...
A search for a quality Golden Retriever to handle in junior showmanship led Liz Bultman to breeder Rhonda Hovan. As they got acquainted by e-mails, Hovan was impressed that Bultman wanted to be sure that Hovan would not require her to neuter or spay the dog at an early age.. The possible health effects of early spaying and neutering is a topic Hovan, the research facilitator for the Golden Retriever Club of America, holds close to her heart. "For years when I looked at adult dogs that Id bred, I saw marked physical differences between those sold as show prospects and those sold as pets," says Hovan, of Akron, Ohio, who has bred Golden Retrievers under the Faera prefix for more than 40 years. "The dogs sold as pets were tall and lanky, with no bone and pointy muzzles. Id look at them and wonder how they got so tall.". To read the whole article download using the button above!. ...

Less than an hour from the site of our 1989 national Chow Chow specialty show, there was a puppy mill. Most of the dogs were small breeds: Pekingese, Pomeranians, Pugs, Yorkies, Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzu, Silky Terriers, Scotties, Cairns, Schnauzers, Poo-mixes (Pekeapoos, Cockapoos, etc.), Miniature Pinschers, Shelties, American Eskimos, West Highland White Terriers and more. All had been raised in a dark barn. Cages with wire floors, stacked to the ceiling. Two or more adults to a cage. The breeder owned two pet stores in another city and also sold to pet brokers. She had been in business over five years. She often acquired her breeding stock from pet owners who were giving away their dogs ...

What is the difference between a Pembroke and a Cardigan Welsh Corgi?. Until 1934, the Kennel Club (Great Britain) classed the Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis as two varieties of one breed. Most fanciers believe that the two breeds evolved separately, the Pembroke from the Spitz family and the Cardigan from the Dachshund family.. The theory is plausible, with anatomical evidence to support it, but impossible to verify or disprove. Interbreeding between the two breeds occurred but was not widespread. With the recognition of the breeds as totally separate by the Kennel Club, breeders gave up interbreeding and the individual integrity of both breeds were saved.. The differences between Pems and Cardis are as notable as are the similarities:. Similarities: Erect ears; foxy head; long, low body; intelligent; energetic; ability to herd and act as a guard dog. Differences: The Pembroke is an extroversive breed, the Cardi is friendly but may be reserved with strangers. The Pembrokes ears are erect, ...

Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder is a common form of cancer of Scottish Terriers (ST) and West Highland White Terriers (WHWT). Within affected breeds incidence is high, treatment is only partially effective, and mortality is usually inevitable. In this proposal, we aim to identify the genetic variants that predispose dogs to developing the disease. We will identify cases (WHWTs and STs) diagnosed with TCC and unaffected controls that meet specified criteria and utilize blood samples from these dogs to identify DNA variants that are present in affected, but absent in unaffected dogs. Due to their shared history, we will anlayze the genomes of both breeds independently and together, as it is possible that some terrier breeds have inherited the disease causing mutation from a common ancestor. DNA samples from affected dogs of other breeds will be collected for later comparisons. Our expected outcome is identification of the genetic variants responsible for TCC in at least two

Skin problems. A skin allergy, atopic dermatitis, inflicts itchy, inflamed skin on as many as 15 percent of all dogs, but certain breeds are particularly susceptible. Dog breeds prone to atopic dermatitis include Dalmatians, Vizslas, and several terriers, such as the Boston Terrier, Bull Terrier, and the West Highland White Terrier. The numerous skin folds of a Chinese Shar-Pei, so valued by some breeders, can become breeding grounds for staphylococcus and other bacteria, which cause frequent skin infections. Also, excess wrinkles of skin on the face can rub on the eye, causing lesions and, potentially, blindness.. Immune system disease. In autoimmune disorders, an individuals immune system, which normally works to fight off foreign invaders, launches a misguided attack against its own tissues and cells. A number of inherited diseases compromising the immune system have been noted in dogs, including primary severe combined immunodeficiency (a dog version of the "bubble boy" disease) among ...

Managing Genetic Disorders. Practical Genetics for Bull Terrier Breeders and Owners. Health Seminar presented to the Bull Terrier Club of America, October 10, 2002. Jerold S Bell, DVM, Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. Along with the new tools of genetic tests, there is a new philosophy for managing genetic disorders. Recognizing that breeders own dogs that they favor; recommendations to eliminate their dogs from breeding and use other dogs is counterproductive. There are breeding recommendations that both preserve breeding lines, and manage genetic disorders.. Management recommendations for genetic disorders will vary due to many factors. These include the mode of inheritance, the availability of genetic tests, the size of the breed gene pool and it s diversity, and the spread of the defective gene(s) causing the disorder. With disorders caused by simple dominant genes, everyone with the gene is affected, so these should be easier to manage. You want to replace affected dogs in ...

The transitional cell carcinoma is a particularly unpleasant tumor of the urinary bladder. In dogs, it usually arises in the lower neck of the bladder, where it is virtually impossible to surgically remove, and causes a partial or complete obstruction to urination. Bloody urine and straining to urinate are typically the signs noted by the owner. We know that Shetland sheepdogs, West Highland White terriers, Beagles, and Scottish terriers seem to be predisposed breeds.

She certainly looks like a Golden Retriever/Cocker Spaniel mix, and we love her just as she is, but we decided to do a DNA test just to learn more. The Mars Wisdom Panel reports that Muppys DNA indicates that she is 37%, Cocker Spaniel. The test was not able to identify other specific breeds in her lineage but does suggest that the next largest component comes from the Terrier group. Muppy has DNA from what the Mars Wisdom Panel defines as the Middle East and African group which contains breeds such as the Afghan Hound, Basenji, Saluki, and Rhodesian Ridgeback. Lastly, according to the test, she contains some DNA from the Herding group.. We decided to do a second test, this one by Embark, which many consider to be more definitive. The Embark test reports that Muppy is: 44.7% Cocker Spaniel, 30.0% Rat Terrier, 12.2% Boston Terrier, and 13.1% SuperMutt. The latter is a category where Embark lumps together other DNA evidence that suggests Muppy may have small amounts of DNA from other distant ...

Occipital bone hypoplasia with foramen magnum obstruction and secondary syringomyelia (SM) is a common condition in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (CKCS) that is similar to human Chiari type I malformation. A worldwide family tree of more than 5,500 CKCSs spanning a maximum of 24 generations was established by obtaining pedigree information from 120 dogs diagnosed with SM secondary to occipital bone hypoplasia. The ongoing study showed 6 of 8 great grandparents of all affected dogs could be traced back to 2 female ancestors so that all 8 were descended from one or the other or both. The disease appears to be more severe and have an earlier onset with increased inbreeding, especially when breeding from affected dogs. The family tree of idiopathic epilepsy (IE) appears to be a different subset of the CKCS population, although some overlap was observed. Idiopathic epilepsy is more frequent in lines originating from whole-color dogs. Selection for coat color is believed to have influenced the ...
Naturally occurring hyperadrenocorticism is a multisystemic disorder resulting from excessive production of cortisol by the adrenal cortex. Hyperadrenocorticism is caused by either excessive pituitary ACTH secretion, as in pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism (PDH), or an autonomously functioning tumor of the adrenal cortex (AT). Primary adrenocortical neoplasia has been diagnosed in 10 to 20% of dogs with hyperadrenocorticism. The prevalence of adenomas and carcinomas in dogs with functioning adrenocortical tumors is approximately equal, and the right and left glands appear to be involved with equal frequency. Bilateral adrenocortical tumors resulting in hyperadrenocorticism are exceedingly rare in dogs. In a retrospective study conducted between 1983 and 1988 of 41 dogs with hyperadrenocorticism caused by adrenocortical neoplasia, 3 dogs (7%) were found to have bilateral adrenocortical neoplasia. The following is a case report of a dog that was diagnosed with hyperadrenocorticism due to ...
A putative staphylococcal protein A (spa) gene was discovered in the genome of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius and used for developing a species-specific spa typing protocol. Thirty-one clinical methicillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius (MRSP) isolates from dogs and cats in four countries were characterized by spa typing, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SCCmec) typing. The results indicated the occurrence of two MRSP clones that acquired distinct SCCmec elements in Europe (t02, PFGE type A, SCCmec type III,) and California (t06, PFGE type B, SCCmec type V).

Introduction. Staphylococcus species are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-positive, coccal bacteria that belong to the family Micrococcaceae (Rich 2005). They are mostly harmless commensals of the skin and mucous membranes, but are potentially pathogenic to humans and many other animal species (Vanni et al. 2009). Nearly all cases of pyoderma in dogs are caused by Staphylococcus intermedius (DeBoer 2006). The name S. intermedius was proposed for isolates that differed from Staphylococcus aureus in various biochemical reactions and with regard to cell wall composition (Hajek 1976). The name Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is now given to the canine-specific strain of S. intermedius. For the purpose of this study, these canine-specific isolates will be referred to as S. intermedius. Staphylococcus intermedius is also an important cause of wound infections, otitis externa, cystitis and ocular and respiratory disease. Similar to S. aureus colonisation seen in humans, healthy dogs frequently carry S. ...
OBJECTIVES. The objective of this study was compare the in vitro activity of Micosept® (Laboratorios Dr. Esteve, S.A.) and other shampoos against Staphylococcus intermedius and Malassezia pachydermatis, main pathogens of skin disorders as pyoderma and dermatitis respectively.. MATERIALS. Six canine isolates of S. intermedius and M. pachydermatis were tested against different shampoos: shampoo A (miconazole and chlorhexidine), shampoo B (undecylenic acid and triclosan - Micosept®), and C (non medicated shampoo). An additional shampoo was tested for S. intermedius: shampoo D (benzoyl peroxide).. The test method was similar as described by Lloyd and Lamport, 1999. Isolates of S. intermedius were grown in brain heart infusion broth during 24 hours at 37°C, and M. pachydermatis on modified Dixons agar during 72 hours at 34°C. Then they were suspended in TBS to get 108 colony-forming units (cfu)/ml. Twenty µl of each was added to 2 ml of a 1/5 dilution of shampoo in sterile saline solution. ...
