Know Canine Disease. Here is an example:
Laryngeal Paralysis: In this disorder, there is some loss of function in the laryngeal muscles that normally open the larynx when an animal breathes in. This is caused by degeneration of certain nerves involved in normal breathing. The result is airway obstruction, to varying degrees, causing loud and labored respiration.
In the Dalmatian, this condition is part of a more widespread condition of the nervous system called laryngeal paralysis-polyneuropathy complex. In the inherited form, signs are usually seen before 6 months of age. Laryngeal paralysis due to other causes is also seen in older dogs of other breeds.
