Overview

This book provides unique material that goes far beyond a description of bone and joint disorders alone. Each chapter provides information on the history, pathogenesis, diagnosis (physical and radiographic), therapy and prognosis of a particular canine skeletal disease as well as how the disease will affect the dog's life.

The text covers all clinically relevant physical regions in the dog, eg, shoulder, elbow, hip, stifle and tarsus, and presents a group of actual, clinical osteochondrosis cases involving different anatomical locations.

The authors address the importance of selection of dogs for breeding, including changes in breed appearance and disease propensity and the effect of high-energy diets in fast-growing animals. Discussion includes the impact of a lifetime of pain for the affected dog and the treatment expense for clients, yet provides steps that help the owner curb the progressive aspects of bone or joint diseases and manage the animal's discomfort.

In daily practice client questions about skeletal disorders are routine. This remarkable, instructional text will provide answers, incidence figures, advice about surgery and timing, and honest analyses of treatment failures and successes. Here is a fresh look at OCD, dysplasias and other bone diseases, with realistic assessments and positive directives for pet care and client support.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ann L. Johnson, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book is a unique compilation of the scientific literature and the authors' experiences with the major canine inherited skeletal diseases including hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and osteochondrosis, containing information concerning heritability, pathophysiology, anatomy, histology, medical and surgical therapy, prognosis, and control programs.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information to the dog owner, breeder, and veterinary practitioner allowing each to make informed decisions when managing dogs with inherited skeletal diseases. These diseases affect a significant portion of the large breed dog populations of the world, which has a considerable impact on the economics of working dog populations and the human animal relationships of pet populations. The book is quite successful at providing substantial information in an easy to follow style.
Audience: The book is written for both lay (owners and breeders) and professional (students and practitioners) audiences, but may prove difficult for all but the most dedicated owners and breeders. The authors are highly regarded as leaders in skeletal disease research and clinical practice, making this book an extremely credible reference.
Features: The book covers three of the most common joint disorders in dogs. Each topic is completely addressed with the information a combination of the authors' experiences and a thorough review of the past and current world literature. Illustration is primarily radiographs, anatomic, and histologic specimens. The radiographs in particular are excellent for visualizing the lesions associated with the disease syndromes. The breadth and depth of discussion exceeds that found in comprehensive surgery and pathology texts which cannot afford to devote similar space to the topics.
Assessment: This book is a useful library addition for anyone involved in managing dogs with inherited skeletal diseases. It is a comprehensive and exhaustive review of the current knowledge of three of the most frequently diagnosed joint disorders in dogs.
