Clinical Neurology Video Database

I think I've seen somewhere that down in the pasterns and hocks like that could be a nutritional issue. These vids aren't meant to have sound? I'm not hearing anything on my computer..

  • Cornell University has compiled a nice video database of neurology cases to accompany Dr. deLahunta's textbook. http://www.neurovideos.vet.cornell.edu/

      • Very interesting. I watched the Weimeraner pup, got choked up :( Poor little doggie doesn't even know it's sick, still running around like nothing's wrong...

                  • Oh, these puppies are very sick, no dispute here. Their gait is completely abnormal, beyond exaggerated, and totally unacceptable. Or to stay in show breeders jargon, they are "overly typey". What we seem to ignore sometimes is that "type" more often than not is just a latent form of selecting for a malformation. And since you always get a (Gaussian) range distribution around the targeted 'norm', some offspring will exhibit too much of a given feature and appear extreme; all just statistical genetics really. And when the "desired" feature is already far in the ridiculous zone, then you end up with a bunch of very sick puppies.

                    • Sickle hocked, down in the pasterns, Astibus is right, this is a product of hypertypical breeding. I have seen pups like this at shows... Sure, you can clean some up with feeding, but this is mostly a result of selective breeding. This would happen if you constantly select hypertypical pups out of every litter, like some breeders have done in many breeds.
