This week on Genome Barks, Lee Arnold, a member of the Board of
Directors of the AKC Canine Health Foundation, welcomes veterinary orthopedist Dr.
Denis Marcellin-Little from North
Carolina State University. Dr. Marcellin-Little is the
recipient of a grant from the AKC Canine Health Foundation to further his
research in elbow dysplasia. Elbow dysplasia is one of the most common
orthopedic problems affecting large and giant breed dogs. However, early
diagnosis of the condition, critical if it is to be treated before the
development of arthritis, is rarely possible with conventional X-rays. Dr.
Marcellin-Little discusses the results of his completed grant where he studied
the tools available to diagnose elbow dysplasia in several breeds. This podcast brought to you by the American Kennel Club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation.
