Weimaraners and HOD
Hypertrophic Osteo-Dystrophy (HOD) is a systemic disease that affects young Weimaraners. Common clinical signs include: depression, temperature >103F, reluctance to walk, lameness, painful and palpation sensitive growth plates, anorexia and dehydration. Additional signs are ocular and nasal discharge, interstitial pneumonia, swelling of the jaw, skin rash and diarrhea. (From The HOD FAQ)
