Clinical and radiographic aspects of nutritional osteodystrophies in dogs
Keywords:Radiography, Dogs, Osteodystrophy, Nutrition.
AbstractWe analysed radiographies of 634 young dogs, males and females, of different breeds, attended at the Veterinary Hospital of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechny of University of São Paulo, from January 1982 to December 1991. The clinical findings were those of metabolic osteopathy. The film readings provided the diagnosis of Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathireoidism, Rickets and Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy. Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathireoidism was the most frequent of the three pathologies. It occurred more in males, and among the purebred dogs it was more frequent in large and giant breeds. The same happened to those whose diagnoses was Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy. Only 11 cases of Rickets were diagnosed during the period of this study.
