Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Disease (DSLD) in the Horse
The Large Animal Surgery Service is looking for horses to investigating the genetic basis for degenerative suspensory ligament disease (DSLD) in the horse. We are collecting a nasal or oral tissue swab from each study horse and isolating the DNA from these samples. The DNA will be used to perform genomic genotyping of each horse. The data will be analyzed for a genetic association with the DSLD condition.

Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon Problems and Suspensory Ligament Problems in the Horse
The Large Animal Surgery Service is looking for horses of all breeds with superficial digital flexor tendon problems or suspensory ligament problems. We are enrolling horses in two clinical trials:
- Clinical trial investigating a new ultrasound technique to aid in the rehabilitation of tendons in the horse.
- Clinical trial investigating genome-wide association with certain tendon injuries in the horse.
We will obtain the following:
- DNA sample (from nasal/oral swab or blood)
- Ultrasound examination of the affected tendon/ligament as well as the contralateral limb
