WHAT DISEASES ARE PETIT BASSET GRIFFON VENDEENS PRONE TO?
- Hip or Elbow Dysplasia: Hip and elbow dysplasia are two of dogs’ most prevalent skeletal disorders. Both conditions cause aberrant growth or malformed elbow or hip joints and are related disorders. The joints and sockets can’t effectively connect because of the irregular form, so they rub and grind instead of moving quickly. Although joint instability is the primary symptom of hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia frequently results in bone or cartilage fragments coming free and irritating the joint tissues. Dysplasia-related rubbing can lead to several problems, including discomfort, lameness, and secondary osteoarthritis. If discovered before the beginning of arthritis, surgery can be performed to repair the joint. If you are rescuing a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, have her examined by a veterinarian to see whether she has dysplasia or is susceptible to developing it. This can help you choose what kinds of activities and exercises she can endure.
- Patellar luxation: Patellar luxation, sometimes called slipping kneecaps, is a prevalent issue in many dog breeds. The knee joint slides in and out of position due to minor irregularities. Pain and sporadic lameness may result from this. Surgical intervention is an option for severe instances, although many dogs recover without it.
- Eye Issues: When the ligaments supporting the lens, a sphere-shaped portion of the eye that concentrates light on the retina, weaken or ruptures, an eye dislocation known as lens luxation results. The lens shifts from its natural position due to the ligaments becoming weaker. Depending on which way the lens falls, it may obstruct normal fluid outflow from the eye, which can cause glaucoma. If the luxation is not surgically corrected, the condition is excruciating and can result in blindness. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen can have persistent pupillary membranes, where strands of fetal tissue cross the iris. Glaucoma, a disorder that results in high pressure on the eye, affects the optic nerve, resulting in blindness.
- Others: Ear infections, epilepsy, allergies, otitis externa, an inflammation of the ear canal, and inguinal and umbilical hernias, defects of the abdominal muscles that can cause internal organs to become trapped and swell under the skin of the belly or groin. Hypothyroidism is a thyroid disorder that produces low hormones and may cause obesity, low energy, and a brittle coat. A veterinarian could advise having your dog undergo hip, eye, and ear exams to detect any of these problems.
