Default Calcinosis circumscripta - occurrence?


"John Mackesy" wrote in message
...
Our 9-month-old male Kelpie (Australian cattle dog) was operated on today

to
remove a calcinosis from his left front paw. We're told this condition is
'rare to uncommon' but is more frequently found in German Shepherds than
other breeds.
Has anyone here encountered this condition?


........No, but here's some reading material for you:

Friends of ours have a 7 month old German Shepherd who has this, only
it's right next to his 5th cervical vertebrae. The vet. surgeon

recommended
just waiting and watching, and have the area re xrayed in 4 months. Their
original vet had absolutely no idea what this was- they had to go to a
specialist.


.......Out of curiosity, what kind of specialist? Just a surgeon? Cripes,
both these dogs are really young too.

buglady,
Their vet was just a general practitioner who had no idea what this was.
He consulted with a friend he went to vet school with who told him what it
was. This vet recommended our vet's office because it has more specialties,
i.e., oncologist, vision specialist and a surgeon. Not sure what kind of
surgeon she is, but she seemed to know her stuff. She wasn't anything like
an orthopedic surgeon, that I know. I know that's all she does, surgery,
doesn't do routine exams. We saw the oncologist when our German Shepherd had
lymphoma.
