Renal Dysplasia and Canine Kidney Disease
Canine kidney disease is common with a number of breeds affected by inherited kidney disorders. Currently, we are focusing on canine renal dysplasia (RD), an inherited condition affecting the developmental maturation of the kidney. The key clinical signs of RD include (but are not limited to) excess water intake and urination from a young age (8 weeks to 2 years of age), and small, irregular-shaped kidneys observed by ultrasound examination. The disease often leads to renal failure. The researchers are looking for samples from dogs with renal dysplasia as well as other forms of kidney disease.More Information
