What is the DEB Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa ?
The DEB is a disease that affects the skin of the Golden Retriever and the Central Asian Shepherd Dog. This disease is non-inflammatory. It forms lesions on the skin that contain fluids. The first symptoms of DEB appear just after the puppy birth. The symptoms are ulcers and small vesicles on the oral mucosa, on the back, on the nose, on the abdomen, on the genital parts and on the feet.
