Retinal dysplasia associated with skeletal abnormalities in Labrador Retrievers. Academic Article uri icon


  • The clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features of skeletal and ocular dysplasia in 6 Labrador Retrievers were studied. Abnormalities in the appendicular skeleton included retarded growth in the radius, ulna, and tibia; ununited and hypoplastic anconeal and coronoid processes; hip dysplasia, and delayed development of epiphyses. Ocular changes were characterized by retinal dysplasia, with retinal detachment and cataract formation. Dogs from 4 litters were affected.
