ID Chip



ID Chip #1

is an 8 year old Labrador Retriever mix who came to us with rear limb lameness and a recurring infection after a previous surgery at another clinic. Dr. Ward at Ward Veterinary Clinic referred Chip and his family to Dr. Dew. Dr. Dew explored the draining tract, submitted tissue for histology and retrieved suture material for culture and sensitivity, The prognosis is good for resolution of infection. The stability of the stifle will determine if a TTA procedure will be beneficial in the future.

While Chip was here, his family asked if we could also do some DNA testing on Chip, since everyone always asks them what breed he is and they just don’t know. Knowing your dog’s breed can sometimes be beneficial when it comes to issues such as training and health problems.

DNA was collected and sent in for testing. We should have the results sometime between October 15th and 22nd. In the meantime, we thought it would be fun to see what our readers think. So, for a chance to win an Azzore Prize Pack, comment with your best guess and help us ID Chip.
