General term for the abnormal appearance of histiocytes in the blood. Based on the pathological features of the cells involved rather than on clinical findings, the histiocytic diseases are subdivided into three groups: HISTIOCYTOSIS, LANGERHANS CELL; HISTIOCYTOSIS, NON-LANGERHANS-CELL; and HISTIOCYTIC DISORDERS, MALIGNANT.
A benign tumor composed, wholly or in part, of cells with the morphologic characteristics of HISTIOCYTES and with various fibroblastic components. Fibrous histiocytomas can occur anywhere in the body. When they occur in the skin, they are called dermatofibromas or sclerosing hemangiomas. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p1747)
A group of disorders resulting from the abnormal proliferation of and tissue infiltration by LANGERHANS CELLS which can be detected by their characteristic Birbeck granules (X bodies), or by monoclonal antibody staining for their surface CD1 ANTIGENS.

Human infections are confined almost entirely to children. This parasite is commonly seen in dogs, other Canidae, and porcupines with humans considered only an accidental host. Transmission is by Phlebotomus sandflies.

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 ...
The German Shepherd Dog was developed in the 19th century in Germany. There were a lot of different shepherd dogs in Germany, but there was not any recognized breed of these dogs. In the 1890s, Captain Max von Stephanitz, a young German cavalry officer, decided to develop a national breed of shepherd dogs. Max von Stephanitz was a very educated man, fond of shepherd dogs and appreciated very high their working abilities. He is known as the father of the breed. April 3, 1899 is considered to be the birthday of The German Shepherd Dog. On that day Max von Stephanitz purchased a herding dog at a dog show. The dogs name was Hektor Linksrhein (later named Horand von Grafrath) and it became a forefather for present German Shepherd Dogs and the first registered GSDs. Horand von Grafrath won the first German Shepherd Dog show that was held by Max von Stephanitz. He founded the Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde, the German Shepherd Dog breeders organization and was named its first president. His efforts ...
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 ...

In the eighteenth century in Britain, only two types of terriers were recognized, long- and short-legged.[4] Today, terriers are often informally categorized by size or by function. Hunting-types are still used to find, track, or trail quarry, especially underground, and sometimes to bolt the quarry. Modern examples include the Jack Russell Terrier, Rat Terrier and the Patterdale Terrier. There are also the short-legged terriers such as the Cairn Terrier, Scottish Terrier, and West Highland White Terrier which were also used to kill small vermin. The original hunting terriers include the fell terrier-breeds developed in northern England to assist in the killing of foxes-and the hunt terrier-breeds developed in southern England to locate, kill or bolt foxes during a traditional mounted fox hunt. The various combinations of bulldog and terrier that were used for bull-baiting and dog-fighting in the late nineteenth century, were later refined into separate breeds that combined both terrier and ...
Assess the prevalence of congenital heart disease (CHD) in a large population of mixed-breed dogs and cats.76,301 mixed-breed dogs and 57,025 mixed-breed cats.Retrospective review of records and examinations based on specified diagnostic criteria.Among mixed-breed dogs, the prevalence of CHD was 0.13% (51.4% female) and of innocent murmurs was 0.10% (53.0% male). Pulmonic stenosis was the most common defect followed by patent ductus arteriosus, aortic stenosis, and ventricular septal defect. Among mixed-breed cats, prevalence of CHD was 0.14% (55.2% male) and of innocent murmurs was 0.16% (54.4% male). When the 25 cats with dynamic left or right ventricular outflow obstruction were counted with cases of innocent murmurs, the overall prevalence was 0.2%. Ventricular septal defects were the most common feline CHD followed closely by aortic stenosis and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. There was no overall sex predilection for CHD in mixed-breed cats or dogs, and no significant difference ...
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..

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 Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a popular dog breed in the UK but there is limited reliable evidence on disorder predispositions and protections within the breed. Using anonymised veterinary clinical data from the VetCompass™ Programme, this study aimed to identify common disorders with predisposition and protection in the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The study hypothesised that Staffordshire Bull Terriers would have higher odds of aggression compared with non-Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The clinical records of a random sample of dogs of all types were reviewed to extract the most definitive diagnoses for all disorders existing during 2016. A combined list from the 30 most common disorders in Staffordshire Bull Terriers and the 30 most common disorders in non-Staffordshire Bull Terriers was generated. Multivariable logistic regression was used to report the odds of each of these disorders in 1304 (5.8%) Staffordshire Bull Terriers compared with 21,029 (94.2%) non-Staffordshire Bull Terriers. After

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.

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 ...
BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY : According to official resolution, the Association for German Shepherd Dogs (Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde) with seat in Augsburg, as a member of the German Kennel Club (Verband für das Deutsche Hundewesen e.V., VDH) and as founding association of the breed, is responsible for the standard of the German Shepherd Dog. This standard was originally drawn up at the first membership meeting of the Association in Frankfurt/Main, on the 20th September 1899, based on proposals made by A. Meyer and von Stephanitz. Amendments were made to the standard during the 6th membership meeting on the 28th July 1901, during the 23rd membership meeting in Cologne/Rhine on the 17th September 1909, at the Board of Directors and Advisory Committee meeting in Wiesbaden, Germany, on the 5th September 1930, and at the Board of Directors and Breed Committee meeting on the 25th March 1961. The standard was revised and adopted by the World Union of German Shepherd Dogs (Weltunion für Deutsche ...

The Basset is a scent hound that was originally bred for the purpose of hunting hare.

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).

Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumor (TVT) is a commonly occurring contagious reproductive tumor of dogs affecting both sexes. A two years old intact male mongrel dog was brought to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex of Veterinary College and Research Institute, Orathanadu with the history of inappetence, multiple subcutaneous swellings and blood tinted urine with dysuria for the past two weeks. Physical examination multiple hard mass approximately 2-5 cm in diameter was noticed all over the body and also swelling of the prepuce area with 12cmx6cm sized mass was noticed. Penis was not able to retract due to sever inflammatory swelling of the prepuce. FNAC and impression smear was collected in subcutaneous nodules and prepuce mass. Confirmative diagnosis was made based FNAC of nodules and an impression smear of ulcerated lesions revealed cells of transmissible venereal tumor. Chemotherapy was started with Vincristine @ 0.025mg/kg b.wt IV once a week for 4 weeks along with supportive treatment. ...
The CPLR does not condone breeding with the primary intention to produce any one particular Labrador Retriever color, commonly called color breeding.. The CPLR recognizes that many Labrador Retriever breeders breed within a certain Labrador color but that their primary goal is not to just produce that color, but rather healthy, intelligent, good-tempered, and trainable Labradors - some which happen to be either silver, charcoal or champagne.. While it may be true that some people believe to develop a Silver Labrador you must cross it with a Weimaraner and thus have done so, these are not breeders educated in Labrador Retrievers nor are they considered ethical breeders. These breeders fall into the same category as Labradoodle breeders. The MPLH gene exists in many breeds including the Great Dane, Sheltie and Grey Hounds. The confusion arises because the grey solid color in Weimaraners and Silver Labradors are very similar. The Kelloggs kennel argument also plays into this fiction but there is ...

The name Bernese Mountain Dog is a rough translation of the German Berner Sennenhund, which literally means Bernese Alpine herdsmans dog. The Bernese Mountain Dog was rescued from near extinction by Swiss cynologist Franz Schertenlieb in the late 1800s. The modern breed was developed from the dogs found in the countryside near Bern, Switzerland and they are only one of several Swiss breeds. The original Berner Sennenhund was an all-round farm dog used to guard the farm, drive the cows to and from their mountain pastures, and pull carts loaded with milk cans to the dairy. The Bernese Mountain Dog needs lots of human companionship and must be allowed regular interaction with the family. The breed is gentle, calm, affectionate and faithful and makes a great watch dog. They are also very good with children and other animals. The Bernese Mountain dog first came to the United States in 1926. A decade later, two more Bernese Mountain Dogs were imported from Switzerland. In 1937, these two dogs ...

A two year-old spayed, female German Shepherd Dog was referred to the Cornell University Companion Animal Hospital on October 22, 1998 for further evaluation of diarrhea that was poorly responsive to treatment. The owners first noticed signs of diarrhea and weight loss when the dog was less than a year old, after being boarded at a kennel. The referring veterinarian diagnosed her with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and possible bacterial overgrowth after a physical exam and lab work in March, 1997. Physical exam revealed no abnormalities except a thin dog with diarrhea. The lab work revealed a low trypsin-like immunoreactivity (TLI) of 0.5 ngfml (Reference range: 535 ng/ml) consistent with EPI. The referring veterinarian began treating her for EPI with the following drugs: Tagamet, Viokase powder, and linmodium and Pepto Bismol as needed. She was also cycled on and off Metronidazole and Tetracycline depending on the severity of her clinical signs. She was started on Hills L?D canned ...

OBJECTIVES : To establish transthoracic echocardiographic reference intervals in adult English springer spaniel dogs. METHODS : Forty-two healthy adult English springer spaniels were prospectively recruited from a general practice population in the UK . Animals were examined twice, at least 12 months apart, to exclude dogs with progressive cardiac disease. Reference intervals were calculated using Box-Cox transformations and specific variables were depicted within an expert consensus range. Relationships of body mass, age and heart rate with cardiac structure and function were examined and functional assessments were compared with previous reports. Reference intervals were compared against published ratiometric indices and allometric scaling models. RESULTS : Thirty-nine dogs contributed to create the reference intervals. Significant relationships with bodyweight, age and heart rate were detected, although low coefficients of determination were found. Fractional shortening values were lower than ...

Obesity in dogs is an increasing problem and better knowledge of the metabolism of overweight dogs is needed. Identification of molecular changes related to overweight may lead to new methods to improve obesity prevention and treatment. The aim of the study was firstly to investigate whether Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) based metabolomics could be used to differentiate postprandial from fasting urine in dogs, and secondly to investigate whether metabolite profiles differ between lean and overweight dogs in fasting and postprandial urine, respectively. Twenty-eight healthy intact male Labrador Retrievers were included, 12 of which were classified as lean (body condition score (BCS) 4-5 on a 9-point scale) and 16 as overweight (BCS 6-8). After overnight fasting, a voided morning urine sample was collected. Dogs were then fed a high-fat mixed meal and postprandial urine was collected after 3 hours. Metabolic profiles were generated using NMR and 45 metabolites identified from the spectral data were

Very few dogs are as lovable as a Labrador Retriever. If you are an outdoor person who loves the company of a four-legged companion, then this dog may be for you. History. Before we begin, know that there are two types of Labrador: the American and the English. The breed as a whole originated in Newfoundland but was taken to England in the 1800s. It worked side by side with fishermen, helping them to bring in their catch. As a service dog, the Labrador Retriever has enjoyed a long history in a variety of services: police dog, watchdog, hunting, disability services, search and rescue, competition and field training. It is one of the oldest and most popular canine pets. Temperament. This dog is well-balanced both in body proportion and temperament. He is a friendly outgoing dog who loves to be loved by his owners. If you own an American breed, then your dog is tall and lanky. The English version is bred more for hunting and retrieving.. Labradors are great companions who are good with children and ...
Splenic abscess is a rare disease with only few reports in small-animal practice as well as in human medicine. It has been mostly reported in immunocompromised patients or following penetrating foreign bodies. This report aims to add to the current veterinary literature on recommended diagnostic tools for splenic abscess, as well as to provide follow-up findings after successful surgical treatment. An 8-year-old male German shepherd dog was admitted to the clinic for evaluation of fever, anorexia, and lethargy for the previous 3 days. During the physical examination, a mass was palpated in the left cranioventral abdomen. Diagnostic imaging including radiography and ultrasonography revealed the presence of a large mass in the spleen and signs of peritonitis. Laboratory tests reflected highly septic pyogranulomatous inflammation and, together with imaging findings, raised a high suspicion of splenic abscess and septic peritonitis. Therapy included complete splenectomy and placement of peritoneal drainage.

An 8 wk old male Yorkshire terrier was presented with a 2 wk history of recurrent hypoglycemia, lethargy, and seizures. Investigations revealed a marked increase in blood ammonia, low serum cobalamin, and increased levels of urinary methylmalonic acid (MMA) excretion. No liver vascular abnormality was detected. The patient was diagnosed with methylmalonic aciduria due to cobalamin malabsorption. The patient responded well to parenteral cobalamin administration, and the urinary MMA levels normalized rapidly following instigation of treatment. Due to the suspected hereditary nature of selective cobalamin deficiency, one sibling of this dog was screened and found to be normal. This is the first reported case of MMA secondary to hypocobalaminemia in Yorkshire terriers, and the second report of this disease in a dog in the United Kingdom. Given the fact that clinical signs of MMA are similar to those seen in dogs with portosystemic shunts and that Yorkshire terriers are predisposed to liver vascular ...

Background: Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease (LCPD) is a debilitating developmental disease that affects small breeds of dog, particularly terrier breeds. The only outward indications of this condition are pain, lameness, and muscle atrophy of the hip joint. These signs are not exclusive to LCPD, and are often attributed to minor trauma during the early stages of disease. LCPD is primarily diagnosed by radiographic changes of the femoral head within the hip joint. Due to the developmental nature and the unknown etiology of the disease, LCPD is difficult to predict and prevent. No disease mapping strategies have been employed to date. Objective: This study is using the Affymetrix canine single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip to identify regions that are linked to LCPD in the West Highland White Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, and Cairn Terrier breeds.
Necrotizing meningoencephalitis (NME) affects toy and small breed dogs causing progressive, often fatal, inflammation and necrosis in the brain. Genetic risk loci for NME previously were identified in pug dogs, particularly associated with the dog leukocyte antigen (DLA) class II complex on chromosome 12, but have not been investigated in other susceptible breeds. We sought to evaluate Maltese and Chihuahua dogs, in addition to pug dogs, to identify novel or shared genetic risk factors for NME development. Genome-wide association testing of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in Maltese dogs with NME identified 2 regions of genome-wide significance on chromosomes 4 (chr4:74522353T|A, p = 8.1×10−7) and 15 (chr15:53338796A|G, p = 1.5×10−7). Haplotype analysis and fine-mapping suggests that ILR7 and FBXW7, respectively, both important for regulation of immune system function, could be the underlying associated genes. Further evaluation of these regions and the previously identified DLA II locus
