Abstract
This report explains typical radiographic features of
Scottish Fold osteochondrodysplasia. Three Scottish Fold
cats suffering from lameness were referred to the
Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, Seoul National
University, Korea. Based on the breed predisposition,
history, clinical signs, physical examination, and radiographic
findings, Scottish Fold osteochondrodysplasia was confirmed
in three cases. Radiographic changes mainly included
exostosis and secondary arthritis around affected joint
lesions, and defective conformation in the phalanges and
caudal vertebrae. The oral chondroprotective agents such
as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate make the patients
alleviate their pain without adverse effects.
