Know Canine Disease. Here is an example:
X-linked muscular dystrophy: This inherited disease is caused by the lack of a single specific protein (dystrophin) which is normally found in muscle fibers. This disease is similar to Duchene muscular dystrophy in humans. The first sign is usually difficulty in swallowing, which is seen as early as 6-8 weeks of age. The clinical signs will progress from poor suckling to generalized muscle weakness and exercise intolerance to muscle withering (atrophy), curvature of the spine, muscle contractures, and heart problems.
