JKD in Boxer Dogs

 

Has your Boxer recently been diagnosed with JKD?

Has your Boxer recently been diagnosed with JKD by your veterinarian? If so, you must have many questions you want answers to. JKD (Juvenile Kidney Disease) or JRD (Juvenile Renal Dysplasia) are one and the same. It is an inherited condition in Boxers which leads to early death.

Whatever you do, PLEASE report the fact that your Boxer has been diagnosed with JKD to boxerJKD.com. This applies to Boxer dogs born in ANY country.

If you KNOW somebody who has a Boxer which has been diagnosed with JKD, please encourage them to report their details, no matter what country.

Until the gene responsible has been isolated and a test developed, Boxer breeders can only strive to avoid producing puppies with JKD if they know which sires and dams are producing it.

Reporting the fact might not immediately help you, but it will help many other prospective Boxer puppy buyers.

If you require one on one support, the Boxers Health Explained group on Facebook is there to help.
