thus it came to the suspicion on a Colour mutation alopecia to the hair loss
with these three puppies in the throw, which the Alopecia exhibited partly
totally, partly in parts within few days, beginning starting from the fourth
week. Only due to the hair and skin color?
clinical picture seemed to interpret into other directions, after all means
demands over two years with the breeder concerned I got the
information suddenly that only two of the three puppies concerned were put
to sleep Chensi, which the third lives - has full hair, healthy skin. What
had happened? The findings or diagnoses could not be correct!

the meantime I had the possibility all the biopsi reports of sighting
laboratory values of the blood and diagnoses. The result was funny, if it
were not nevertheless so sad. Two independently working laboratories came to
two different diagnoses. In a case even a laboratory with two different
findings at two puppies so of the litter strongly concerned.
clinical observations, the occurrence of the alopecia in the fourth week
seemed to interpret on one " black hair dilution alopezie ". The grey skin,
the damage of the hair follicles on one " color dilution alopecia " The
changes in the epidermis were called even in a report " follikular dysplasia
" - a flexible term!
blood investigations on hypo thyreoid disease and liver values did not
result in findings. Leukocytes were not counted out only at all, were
determined just as few the hormone mirror.
Showed me the available laboratory results for all puppies from the throw (black
& tan all were without findings), in particular for the " grey ones "
concerned at that time, always recurring biopsi material and blood-took with
the result that from the beginning only into one, due to the skin color
assumed direction was looked for. Actual medical clarifying and treatment
the second consideration that three puppies from this throw at the age got
sick between 11 and 12 weeks heavily, everything is noticeable to throw
history at the same age, the same symptoms, which had same lethargy and all
three at far apart lying places the same, very rare virus illness, which
could be healed completely by means of treatment with special antibiotics (with
all three did not seize the antibiotics given first) .
could have bring along this only from the breed place. Why only did the
three grey hair changes show? It is assumed from research side that
genetically " blue " (grey) phenotypes are more susceptible in the
immune defense. In this available case the skin metabolism was mixed up
strongly by the virus illness, then it could come to these hair losses,
excessive skin growth and directly beside it the dismantling of skin cells.
this case however it was remarkable that one of the pathological institutes
stated very large interest in this new, alopecia-occures which can not be
assigned for further research.
clarifying telephone discussion, confronted with the fact that one
" blue " animals concerned and of the genetic from the throw still lives
today, without clinical findings and perfectly from an assumed, irreparably
genetic diagnosis recovered, explained to me Dr. Bomhard, Munich that he
sees only material bio psi samples and not the clinical picture as a
pathologist. For the Biopsi material however unfortunately only ignited
follicles had been taken.
due to the " grey " skin color there pulled here the suspicion of one
perhaps " hereditare " illness of colour mutation on the no longer existing
true clarifying of the cause never took place, in this direction one had not
searched! Two puppies were put to sleep, a breed dog was castrated; the
breed given up. Fortunately on operation of the animal lady doctor an
inspired owner was, which took up a grey puppie despite the dark prognosis
Chensi lives! All hair had again regenerated
within 3 weeks. It became with skin and hair a healthy, pretty Do Khyi girl,
who the veterinarian only saw to the inoculation dates, for healing the
virus illness completely in the 12. week of life and for castration.
Chensi is the alive proof of a wrong diagnosis; a miscarriage of justice
over the so short life of Chang po and Candra.
