Is That Normal for a Dachshund? Recognizing Radiographic Breed Variants in Every Body System

07 Nov 2019
Clinician’s Brief Clinical Theater 1
Diagnostic Imaging

The hardest part of diagnostic imaging in veterinary medicine is the diversity of the species that we evaluate. From horses to cows, dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits and dolphins, lung and cardiac silhouette appearance and pathology can be confusing since horses are not just large dogs. That said, a large amount of variability within a species is also present. Pug and Jack Russell Terriers, Great Danes and Greyhounds have all evolved to have a different appearance to the lungs and heart which needs to be recognized in order to avoid misdiagnoses.

  • 1. To understand breed differences between dogs seen on radiographs
  • 2. Recognize differences in the appearance of the thorax, abdomen and the musculoskeletal system of various types of dogs
  • 3. See examples of common breed anomalies that are misdiagnosed as pathology.
