An inherited intrinsic platelet aggregation defect has been identified in Basset Hounds which clinically resembles the human disease, Glanzmann's thrombasthenia. The defect was named Basset Hound Hereditary Thrombopathy (BHT) and initial studies revealed variably prolonged bleeding times, normal blood coagulation parameters, normal platelet count and morphology, normal whole blood clot retraction, and an abnormal platelet aggregation response to adenosine diphosphate (ADP). An evaluation of the specific platelet defect included simultaneous measurement of dense granule release and aggregation, two dimensional electrophoretic and crossed immunoelectrophoretic techniques in order to determine if the defect was associated with platelet membrane glycoprotein abnormalities, and measurement of radiolabeled fibrinogen binding to ADP stimulated platelets. An analysis of two-dimensional and crossed-immunoelectrophoretic gels revealed no abnormalities in platelet protein/glycoprotein content when affected Basset Hound platelets were compared to normal dog platelets.

Find out the answers to your most pressing questions about Basset Hounds, such as: Is a Basset Hound the right breed for my lifestyle? What should I expect from a Basset breeder or rescue group? How do I prepare my home for a curious, nose-driven pup? Which training methods are most effective for training Basset Hounds? The Basset Hound has an unmistakable profile. They have the long, square snout, muscular body, and loose skin of their Bloodhound ancestors, but with short legs and a long, sabre-shaped tail. The olfactory ability of this breed is second only to the Bloodhound itself, and they are unrelenting once they have caught a scent. Both the short legs and the long, upwardly curved tail—which is tipped in white—are designed to make these stout hounds easier for hunters to follow on foot. Although they are enthusiastic hunters in the field, they tend to be calmer and more relaxed at home, sometimes to the point of laziness. Bassets are particularly agreeable animals, both with people and with other dogs, and they make excellent family companions as well as exemplary hunting hounds. They are typically gentle with young children, have a very pleasant disposition, and are comfortable in the role of everyone’s best friend and confidant. Basset Hounds aren’t right for everyone, however, as they can be stubborn, tend to be highly skilled counter-surfers, and frequently howl when left alone for long periods. The Complete Guide to Basset Hounds is a treasure-trove of information about this distinctive breed of hound dog. Everything you need to help ensure that your friendly Basset Hound pup develops into a well-behaved, healthy, and confident canine companion can be found within these pages. From your first search for a breeder to your precious pooch’s senior years, the indispensable knowledge compiled within will have you reaching for this extensive guidebook over and over again. This comprehensive book covers nearly every aspect of raising a Basset Hound, including: The history of the Basset Hound The challenges of living with a scenthound Where to find a good Basset Hound breeder or rescue Choosing the right Basset Hound for you Preparing your home for a new dog—inside and out What to expect the first few days home The importance of rules and boundaries in the Basset’s life Best practices for grooming your Basset Hound Diet and nutrition for the Basset Hound Dealing with separation anxiety and other problem behaviors Exercising and training your stubborn Basset Hound Breed-specific health and wellness information for all stages How to resist the Basset Hound’s legendary “sad eyes” Caring for the aging Basset Hound Basset Hounds are one of the most amicable of dog breeds, but not always the most cooperative. They are both exceptional tracking dogs, steadfast in their ability to follow a trail, and excellent family companions, calm, affectionate, and not overly boisterous. They are stubborn, slobbery, and worth every second. This exhaustive manual will give you all the tools you need to ensure your Basset Hound’s health and happiness, from their first day with you until their last. This comprehensive guidebook is a must-have addition for anyone considering bringing a Basset Hound into their lives.

This book (Basset Hounds) provides you with a through description and positive attributes of this breed including origin, purpose, history, normal heights and weights, acceptable colors and behavioral traits. Our books diff er from most books on dog breeds because this book also provides you with a comprehensive and authoritative source of all the known predisposed hereditary health syndromes for the breed. You will find extensive references for each problem described. We also provide the breed club address for this breed and a list of laboratories and organizations that can provide professional help and information. As a small animal veterinarian, I have always been intrigued by the way dogs have been bred to fill a purpose in life and further impressed that they also tend to love performing that service. Greyhounds and other sight hounds are built for speed with aerodynamic bodies consisting of small head, deep chest, narrow waist and large leg muscles. On the other hand Dachshunds take their name from German words meaning “badger dog” and they use their long nose, long body and short legs to both track, enter and dig into badger dens. After developing a practice that catered to clients with show dogs, my interest in each breed continued to grow as I studied and observed more and more about the unique predisposition and incidence of health problems in each breed. Breeders of purebred dogs for show were a challenge and inspirational for me to research and help them with their unique health problems. Historically references to hereditary problems are scattered throughout various Veterinary medical texts and journals such as ophthalmology, neurology, gastroenterology, cardiovascular and dermatology. This book, as well as the other books and articles I have written, is researched and compiled with the intention to provide both veterinarians and dog owners with comprehensive and authoritative predisposition information under the breed name. At the date of this publication, The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation and the The Kennel Club of England reports over 400 known hereditary health syndromes throughout the dog kingdom. At the writing of my fi rst book in 1983, less than 50 hereditary issues are able to be predicted and or diagnosed. Sequencing of the canine genome, DNA tests, metabolic testing including blood tests and urine testing; plus, phenotypic examinations such as radiographs, ultrasound, and CERF or OFA eye registry exams by a Board Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist have advanced the science of breed related health and behavioral problems. This book will provide veterinarians, researchers, pet owners and breeders with a comprehensive guide to all the known problems veterinarians and dog owners should consider during pet selection and throughout each life stage of our canine friends.

BASSET HOUNDS amp BEAGLES WITH DESCRIPTIVE AND HISTORICAL SKETCHES ON EACH BREED, THEIR BREEDING, AND USE AS A SPORTING DOG By Carl E. Smith A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT Originally published in 1926 as "Training the Rabbit Hound", this extremely scarce early work on Bassets and Beagles is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author spent over twenty years breeding and training these small hounds for his own use, and commercially for others. His methods met with much commendation from satisfied hunters nationwide. Although the book is primarily concerned with the popular American sport of rabbit hunting with hounds, much of the content is also applicable to the traditional hunting of the hare. The book consists of one hundred and eighty five pages containing fourteen comprehensive chapters: Selection of the Pup, Early Training, Field Work, Getting Used to the Gun, Later Training, Breeding the Rabbit Hound, Feeding and Caring, Kennel Care and Training, The Basset Hound, Pheasant Hunting with Bassets, The Beagle, Ailments and Remedies etc. The book is well illustrated with a number of vintage photos. Notes on the history and origin of the two breeds will prove of much interest to owners and historians alike. "Ears that sweep away the morning dew, Crooked-kneed and dewlapped like Thessalian Bulls." Shakespeare Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
