A recent VetCompass research paper has been chosen to feature in this months edition of The Kennel Scope magazine, published last week by the Kennel Club.
The Kennel Scope magazine is a free, quarterly e-newsletter aimed at keeping veterinary professionals informed of the latest news and developments in canine health, including up-to-date research on health issues and the availability of practical tools for use by their practices and dog-owning clients. Each edition is sent out electronically to subscribers (currently a 3,800 strong group of largely vets, vet nurses and veterinary students) and remains accessible online at the KC website to anyone with an interest in canine health.
Issue 10 (September 2015) includes information on the KC's Puppy Awareness Week (PAW) and PetLog identification microchipping, as well as updates on a range of completed, ongoing and prospective research studies focussed on various canine health issues. Alongside an article on canine Familial Nephropathy (FN), the regular 'Learning Zone' feature summarises the findings of recent research by Dr Dan O'Neill, using VetCompass data to explore the links between extreme head conformation in dogs and breathing problems related to the upper airways (Epidemiological associations between brachycephaly and upper respiratory tract disorders in dogs attending veterinary practices in England. O’Neill et al. Canine Genetics and Epidemiology 2015, 2:10).
