In this study, the clinical progress and the treatment results of cases Istanbul University, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Surgery with a complaint of stilted gait, pain, lameness, reluctance to move, kyphosis and miniature appearance have been evaluated. The study materials included eleven Scottish Fold cats. The cases underwent conservative and surgical treatment due to severity of osteochondrodysplasic lesions. The aim of this study is to draw attention to this illness of…

Osteochondrodysplasia in a 9-Year-Old Scottish Fold Cat
Physical findings such as kyphosis, hyperflexion of joints and thick tail and radiological findings including periosteal bone proliferation in distal extremities, ankylosing changes in spine and tail and, calcification of triceps brachii insertion were consistent with the most advanced osteochondrodysplasia ever documented.


Osteochondrodysplasia in three Scottish Fold cats
Radiographic changes mainly included exostosis and secondary arthritis around affected joint lesions, and defective conformation in the phalanges and caudal vertebrae.

Palliative irradiation was successful in relieving the clinical signs within a few weeks and the short- and long-term results after radiotherapy are presented and discussed with a comparable human disease, the plantar heel spur, which also responds well to radiotherapy.
Osteochondrodysplasia in Scottish Fold cats
Six Scottish Fold cats aged between 5 months and 6 years were presented for signs of skeletal disease including lameness, reluctance to jump, a stiff stilted gait, short misshapen distal limbs, swelling of plantar tarsometatarsal regions and short thick inflexible tails, which suggested the underlying problem may be an osteochondrodysplasia related to inadequate cartilage maturation.
Resolution of lameness associated with Scottish fold osteodystrophy following bilateral ostectomies and pantarsal arthrodeses: a case report.
Degenerative changes in the phalangeal joints of the hind limbs have progressed radiographically, but lameness has not recurred 48 weeks following the second arthrodesis.
Incomplete dominant osteochondrodysplasia in heterozygous Scottish Fold cats.
All Scottish Fold-related cats with folded-ear phenotype, even if heterozygotes, suffered from some degree of osteochondrodysplasia of the distal limbs, including the tail in which bone deformity had been demonstrated in previous studies.
Feline degenerative joint disease.
The high prevalence of feline DJD and lack of information about it, suggests further investigation is needed, and development of a feline model of chronic DJD-associated pain may speed the development and evaluation of candidate pain-alleviating compounds and treatments.
Osteoarthritis in the cat
There is limited evidence for the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acid-rich diets in managing feline OA and further work is required, while research into environmental enrichment as a way of improving quality of life in cats with painful OA is lacking.

A 5-year-old, 86-g female cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus) was presented with a respiratory abnormality and was hospitalized for observation pending laboratory and radiology results.
Breed-related disorders of cats.
The selective breeding of Burmese cats with domeshaped heads in the USA resulted in craniofacial defects (meningoencephalocoele) due to an autosomal recessive gene (Sponenberg and Graf-Webster 1986), and the GCCF refused to allow UK Burmies to be bred with those from the USA.
