Funded by the AKC Canine Health Foundation primarily for his research in cryptorchidism, Dr. Rothschild’s areas of research interest are gene mapping, reproduction and immunogenetics of swine, new statistical methods to evaluate animals and gene identification in dogs.
Dr. Rothschild helps us understand what cryptorchidism is and discusses the health concerns associated with the condition and the developments in his research to find the genetic cause.
Furthermore, Dr. Rothschild is doing genetic research on Cranial Cruciate Ligament disease. He discusses the condition and the status of the research.
