Constitutional diseases are here defined as malfunctions or pathological lesions whose etiology depends to a significant degree upon the action of genetic factors. If a disease occurs sporadically among genetically heterogeneous individuals, it may be possible to distinguish between hereditary and environmental influences. The importance of genotype is then not determinable. In genetically controlled laboratory mice, however, it has been possible to identify a wide variety of constitutional.

Abstract. It is well recognized that naturally occurring diseases of animals can provide insights into the causal mechanisms, pathogenesis, and therapy of human disease. 37,55,75,,, Animal models are particularly useful in the study of genetic disorders, in which the chain of events between the underlying cause and the pathologic phenotype is difficult or impossible to study in man (e Cited by: Hamori, Constitutional disorders and hereditary diseases in domestic animals () In Developments in Animal and Veterinary Sciences II New York, Elsevier D.R. Harris, The distribution and ancestry of the domestic goat Proc Linnean Soc Lond () Cited by: While there is the popular saying that cats have nine lives, the truth is that their organism is susceptible to numerous different diseases. Many of the common diseases and conditions in cats are shared by humans; one of them is polycystic kidney disease, or PKD. Polycystic kidney disease . The vast increase in the global trade in animals and animal products turned such diseases into a threat to both economic relations and public health, and called for international attention.

Congenital diseases yIn some cases animals can be born with a disease. Some of these may be inherited (passed on from the parents). This is rare, and inherited diseases are usually seen at birth. An example is congenital hydrocephalus, which is a swelling of the brain caused by fluid, and can be clearly seen as a swelling of the head. This paper begins with a brief summary of knowledge concerning the frequency and types of genetic diseases in small domestic animals, particularly the dog.   In the very first textbook of genetics, Bateson () compiled a catalogue of inherited disorders in animals: hairlessness and waltzing in mice; polydactyly in guinea pigs and cats; abbreviated tails in cats and dogs; extra toe, rumplessness and ‘extraordinary development of the nostril’ in chickens; and webbed foot in pigeons. In the edition of Bateson's book, short-leggedness in Dexter cattle Cited by: Select from our A to Z list to read all about a disease or condition in one comprehensive overview.
