6(802), 7, 10 In LCP, an interruption in circulation results in ischemic necrosis of the femoral head and neck. The disease usually occurs between 4 and 12 months of age and only one leg is usually affected. Affected dogs present with lameness and pain. If diagnosed early enough, the affected leg may be placed in a non-weight-bearing sling; otherwise the damaged femoral head must be removed or replaced surgically. The condition is suspected to be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait with incomplete penetrance.
Lindauer et al (1992) defined a canine as being impacted after complete root development or if the contra lateral tooth was erupted for at least 6 months with complete root formation. Mason et al (2001) defined an impacted tooth as one ''whose eruption is considerably delayed, and for which there is clinical or radiographic evidence that further eruption may not take place. Kuftinec and Shapira, (1995) defined impaction as a condition in which a tooth is embedded in the alveolus so that its eruption is prevented or the tooth is locked in position by bone or by adjacent tooth. Diagnosis of Impacted Maxillary Canine: Early detection of impacted maxillary canines may reduce treatment time, complexity, and cost. Ideally, patients should be examined by the age of 8 or 9 years to determine whether the canine displaced from a normal position in the alveolus and assess the potential for impaction(Shapira and Kuftinec, 1998).
In lateral canal stenosis as there is involvement of the nerve it results in severe radiculopathy, with muscle weakness, pain and immobility. This results from a series of changes in the components of the central and lateral canal such as ligamentum flavum inflammation, bony spurs, epidural fat deposition and facetal hypertrophy. (1) Management of spinal stenosis includes conservative or surgical treatment. Conservative approach comprises of rest, analgesics, anti inflammatory medications, physical exercises, and weight loss. Surgery is done in patients who have severe pain, disability, neuropathy or malignancy.

She finds that Mary’s tissue isn’t as pink as usual, and more inflammation is present. She starts to measure around some of the teeth for inflammation and/or bone loss. Upon some isolated probing, Mary’s gums are bleeding spontaneously and there seems to be more plaque developing on the inside of her front teeth.
