Does anyone have any knowledge, or know of any reports/studies on chondrodysplasia or osteochondrodysplasia (dwarfism) in deer?
I received a fawn last night that I am fairly certain would be diagnosed with chondrodysplasia (normal torso/head, abnormally short appendages & twisting of front legs).
I would be interested in more information or if there might be any studies of this congenital abnormality in white-tail deer.
