The National Dog Show, plus ‘Puppy Strangles’

Editor Susan Chaney interviews an internal medicine specialist at the U.C. Davis William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital to examine the prevalence of juvenile cellulitis, or “puppy strangles.” The immune-mediated condition can affect puppies as young as three weeks old, and can result in scarring if not promptly treated. Learn the symptoms of this progressive disease, and find out which breeds are most likely to be affected.

The National Dog Show has become a Thanksgiving Day television tradition, with a nationwide audience between 17 and 20 million viewers. One of the country’s few remaining benched shows, this year’s broadcast represents the 11th year that fans of football can take a break to watch four-legged athletes in action. Meet two breeds competing in this year’s event for the first time, and discover why some sports fans prefer Boxers to quarterbacks on turkey day.

Kayla Bertagnolli, Norri Hennagin and I will be in Oaks, Pa., beginning tomorrow to attend the all-breed shows of the Penn Treaty Kennel Club, Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association, Kennel Club of Philadelphia and the National Dog Show. The total entry for the weekend exceeds 4,800, so we’ll have plenty of photo ops to share with you. If you’re also planning to attend, please be sure to stop us to have a photo taken of your dog.

Juvenile Cellulitis, aka Puppy Strangles, Is Not as Bad as It Sounds
By Susan Chaney

“Puppy strangles” sounds like a terrible disease. Its proper name, juvenile cellulitis, makes it seem a bit less scary. And it should. While the condition is something that only puppies normally get, it is curable, and, depending on the disease’s progression at time of treatment, a puppy can even recover from the immune-mediated pustular disorder without any long-term ill effects. more
