One-hundred and seventy-five labradoodles underwent slit-lamp biomicroscopy and direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy between January 2008 and December 2009. These examinations were performed at shows by the first author. In addition, labradoodle eye certificates from the 2008 and 2009 British Veterinary Association/Kennel Club/International Sheep Dog Society (BVA/KC/ISDS) Eye Scheme were analysed (n=260). The results of the examinations were reviewed, and all ophthalmic abnormalities were… 

Disorder predispositions and protections of Labrador Retrievers in the UK

This study provides useful information about breed-specific disorder predispositions and protections, which future research could evaluate further to produce definitive guidance for Labrador Retriever breeders and owners.

Breed and conformational predispositions for prolapsed nictitating membrane gland (PNMG) in dogs in the UK: A VetCompass study

The results showing young age at diagnosis along with the breed, purebred and brachycephalic skull conformation predispositions suggest a hereditary involvement in PNMG development may help to guide breeding strategies to reduce the prevalence of PN MG and improve welfare in predisposed individuals.

Signalment risk factors for cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (Alabama rot) in dogs in the UK

Two Kennel Club breed groups—hounds and gun dogs—had the highest risk of being diagnosed with CRGV compared with terriers, while toy dogs were absent from among CRGV cases.

Canine dystocia in 50 UK first-opinion emergency-care veterinary practices: prevalence and risk factors

This study analysed a merged database of clinical records from 50 first-opinion emergency-care veterinary practices participating in the VetCompass Programme to find certain breeds, including some brachycephalic and toy breeds, appeared at high risk of dystocia.

Associations between neutering and early‐onset urinary incontinence in UK bitches under primary veterinary care

Increased hazard of early‐onset urinary incontinence was identified in neutered bitches, with the effect increasing with age, and in bitches neutered before 6 months, within the first 2 years following neutering, in both models.

Seizures in dogs under primary veterinary care in the United Kingdom: Etiology, diagnostic testing, and clinical management

The differences between seizure classifications in the clinical records and those retrospectively assigned by the researchers support the need for clearer diagnostic guidelines in clinical practice.

Seizure occurrence in dogs under primary veterinary care in the UK: prevalence and risk factors

The prevalence values reported here can support pharmacovigilance with baseline data from the overall population and assist veterinarians in refining differential diagnosis lists for dogs reported with behaviors that may have been seizures.

Chronic kidney disease in dogs in UK veterinary practices: prevalence, risk factors, and survival.

Increased awareness of CKD risk factors and association of blood biochemistry results with survival time should facilitate diagnosis and optimize case management to improve animal survival and welfare.

Pedigree dog welfare: whose responsibility?

In August 2008 the subject of pedigree dog breeding hit the headlines in the form of a BBC documentary entitled ‘Pedigree Dogs Exposed’, which led the RSPCA and Dogs Trust to withdraw their support for Crufts and the BBC subsequently refused to televise their annual coverage of the show.



A survey of cataracts in golden and labrador retrievers

The hypothesis of dominant inheritance, probable from the pedigree data, received further support from instances of cataracts in retriever crosses, and evidence was obtained for the occasional transformation of a PPS cataract into a totalCataract.

Incidence and ocular manifestations of multifocal retinal dysplasia in the golden retriever in the UK

Pulse oximetry is used in veterinary medicine to measure arterial oxygen-haemoglobin saturation in newborn lambs by pulseOximetry and in horses surgically treated for colic.

Inheritance of multifocal retinal dysplasia in the golden retriever in the UK

Treatment should be undertaken as early as possible, during the prepatent period, before Fgigantica eggs appear in faeces of the host, in order to minimise losses and improve the performance of buffalos.

Inheritance of associated ocular and skeletal dysplasia in Labrador retrievers.

Analysis of the distribution of lesions in pups indicated that Labrador Retrievers syndrome is caused by one abnormal gene, which has recessive effects on the skeleton and incompletely dominant effect on the eye, which would suggest that suspect carrier dogs could be identified by test matings with a known homozygote.

COL9A2 and COL9A3 mutations in canine autosomal recessive oculoskeletal dysplasia

These models offer potential for studies such as protein-protein interactions between different members of the collagen gene family, regulation and expression of these genes in retina and cartilage, and even opportunities for gene therapy.

Ernst Mayr: Genetics and speciation.

To tackle demand management of primary care services, the focus cannot be on primary care alone; a whole-systems approach is needed because the introduction of interventions in primary care is often just the starting point of the referral process.
