Acral Mutilation Syndrome (AMS)

Acral Mutilation Syndrome (AMS) is an inherited sensory neuropathy disorder affecting several sporting breeds.

 

The disease is characterised by insensitivity to pain in the feet ( acral analgesia ) which can be associated with sudden and intense licking, biting and severe self-mutilation of the feet, while proprioception, motor abilities and spinal reflexes remain intact.

Affected puppies look smaller than their healthy littermates.
