SPOTLIGHT ON HEALTH
Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD)
 
Canine Hip Dysplasia is a genetic disease with various degrees of arthritis (also called degenerative joint disease, arthrosis, osteoarthrosis), leading to pain and debilitation.
 
CHD is effected by a number of things from genetics, environment, nutrition or a combination of the aforementioned.
 
CHD can affect any breed of dog from the largest to the smallest (though Greyhounds are said to have eliminated it).
 
CHD symptoms can be limping, pain after playing, slow getting up, difficulty climbing or there can be no symptoms at all.
 
There are two main organizations that evaluate hips:  OFA - Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or PennHIP - Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program.  Speak to your vet. for more information about the two differing types.
 
Animals with CHD should not be bred.
 
LOOKING AHEAD
The next scheduled AABC event is set for March in Kalamazoo, MI.  This will be a weight pull event in conjunction with K-9 Fanciers and the Michigan Classic.  See the upcoming events section for more details.
