Canine gout

Gout is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood which crystallize and are deposited in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues. I have seen many sites saying that Dalmations are the only dogs that get this. Untrue. Prob the breed that gets it most often, but Irish Wolfhounds, English Pointers, Rottweilers, Labrador Retrievers, & German Shepherds can get it.
