Theme attended at 3rd IDHW in Paris

  1. Health and welfare issues continue to be in media, with a comment in the latest issue of The Veterinary Record entitled "Brachycephalic tipping point: time to push the button?" and a report: "It's now time to curb advertising using flat-faced dogs, say vets". The latter has comments from industry representatives, researchers, vets and others. Many in the UK are alarmed at the burgeoning popularity of these dogs. As Caroline Kisko, of The Kennel Club states, for all breeds, less than a third of these dogs are registered/ come under the umbrella of The KC. Which means the vast majority are
  2. French Bulldogs and more: Taking the temperature on brachycephalic health March 8, 2017 Bringing big data to bear on health concerns "In 2013, Nationwide pet health insurance, then operating under the name of Veterinary Pet Insurance® or VPI®, decided to use its peerless database of pet health insurance claims to develop both medical and financial studies. The goal was to produce analyses that would assist pet owners and members of the veterinary community in making sound decisions around pet health and the business of veterinary medicine."
  3. Our latest edition of DogWellNet.com Digest. November 15, 2016 Check out the latest content on our site.
  4. "Following the Swedish Kennel Club (SKK) Symposium on Brachycephalic Dogs in February 2016, the SKK issued a press release describing the background, current and future actions related to brachycephalics. See article and press release on DogWellNet.com. Included in that report was a statement on the breeding of brachycephalic dogs and strategies to improve the health status. It was indicated that actions must be taken with cooperation across many stakeholder groups." Here we provide links to information posted by the Norwegian Kennel Club and The Finnish Pug Club on approaches to
  5. BBC's Science and Environment's latest article "English Bulldog health problems prompt cross-breeding call" by Paul Rincon brings to light a recent study, "A genetic assessment of the English bulldog". English Bulldog health problems prompt cross-breeding call - BBC News-internalarchive.pdf
  6. Research is ongoing. Kennel clubs, researchers and breed fanciers in Sweden and France work to find ways to improve health in the English Bulldog breed.
  7. There is much to ponder when considering breeding dog ethical questions including: There is always another perspective to hear and side to discuss related to welfare and ethics. Although there is a middle ground, those with the loudest voice and most extreme views appear to influence the breeding dog debate. Veterinarians seem to be under-represented in this public forum. Exploring options: One Welfare’s Brachycephalic Dog Scenario highlights some of the health challenges associated with breeding brachycephalic dogs. It portrays a situation that veterinarians i
  8. It is great to see the increased momentum for addressing issues of health and welfare in brachycephalics around the world. IPFD hopes to facilitate collaborative international efforts across multiple stakeholder groups. It is clear that this issue is a global one and requires a coordinated approach to be truly effective. Perhaps what is also needed is a recognition that these are complex challenges, with no easy solution. The issues involve not only medicine and science, but are fraught with emotion and influenced by long-held beliefs. Aspects of human-dog interactions both enri
  9. UK: Bio-Acquisition Research Collaboration (BARC): A facility which helps bring researchers and clinicians together with regards to research projects, allowing more collaboration of ideas, information, and providing a platform to advertise requests for required samples.
  10. The attached paper describes a preliminary study done at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of The University of Helsinki at the request of and in collaboration with The Finnish Pug Club. The study aimed to determine whether aspects of clinical history and symptoms or other evaluations could differentiate between dogs identified by their owners as 'good' or 'bad' breathers. It is a small study - 20 Pugs in total - but the findings are interesting and have been used by the Finnish Pug Club and the Finnish Kennel Club (FKK) to inform work on health issues in this breed.
  11. A walking test developed for brachycephalic dog breeds will be adopted by the Finnish Pug Dog Club. The Club has included the test in their requirements for breeding dogs. The requirement of passing the walking test will come into force when tests can be carried out all over Finland. The Finnish Kennel Club (FKC) and the University of Helsinki arranged a news conference and a colloquium for the breed clubs of the brachycephalic breeds earlier this week. Preliminary results on a study examining walking test results on Pugs and Bulldogs were presented. The results showed that the test is ab
  12. Blog -- Vet Help Direct: by Dr Pete Wedderburn BVM&S CertVR MRCVS on May 9, 2016 (see links below). Following the Swedish example where veterinarians initiated a petition concerned with health and welfare issues in brachycephalic dogs and a challenge to UK veterinarians on the Pedigree Dogs Exposed blog... Vets in the UK are helping to raise awareness for health and welfare issues in Brachycephalic dogs. As detailed elsewhere on DogWellNet.com, including The Brachycephalic Issue: Evidence and Efforts, many kennel clubs and breed clubs have been addressing these is
  13. Earlier this year SKK arranged a conference on the short-headed dogs. The content of the conference has now been reviewed by a working group and resulted in a statement and strategies for future work on the issue. May of 2016 -- the SKK has posted several news releases pertaining to outlining management strategies for 'snub-nosed' breeds as follow-ups to the February conference. VIDEOS of the conference presentations are available on SKK's YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJNEE6TcK5b1MGMuTbXjsDZS3g4OIUsnA
  14. Developments in Sweden in the fall of 2015 serve to highlight the challenges of addressing health and welfare in 'flat-faced dogs', i.e. The Brachycephalic Issue. We follow them here, chronologically as they serve to exemplify the problems and, hopefully, to inform others working in this area.
  15. Many of the articles in this section of DogWellNet.com on The Brachycephalic Issue focus on challenges and efforts at breed club, kennel club, national and international levels and across diverse stakeholder groups - breeders, breeding advisors, veterinarians, researchers, regulators and others. Many visitors to this site will be well-acquainted with the physical, physiological and welfare issues in individual dogs and for breed populations. In this article, we point to some resources that are available describing the problems that can arise because of the brachycephalic conformation. There
  16. Continuing our series on The Brachycephalic Issue: Today Rowena Packer and others have published the following study: Impact of Facial Conformation on Canine Health: Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (Rowena M. A. Packer, Anke Hendricks, Michael S. Tivers, Charlotte C. Burn; [PLOS] Published: October 28, 2015 DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0137496 ). The study concludes that shorter muzzles are associated with increased risk of health problems (Brachycephalic Airway Sydrome), even within affected breeds and offers a good discussion of practical implications and recommendations. As y
  17. Dr. Anne Posthoff, the president of the German International Club for French Bulldogs, explains why the rules for breeding French Bulldogs in Germany are amongst the strictest in the world.
