Most veterinary professionals are wary of information obtained on the internet. For this reason the veterinary surgeon Kit Sturgess has written an article examining thoracic deformities and treatments for them, and lists a bibliography for further reading. Kit's veterinary qualifications are listed in the article. This can be downloaded for printing or reading (as a pdf) by clicking here. If you are not a vet, please be aware that the content of this article necessarily contains images which may be upsetting to you (photographs of dead kittens, and post-mortem examinations). This is necessary for the clinical description and examination of the problem.

You may also find it useful to read an early research article written by Kit and a veterinary research group, which investigated one possible cause for FCKS. This can be downloaded here (click on the filenmames on the list to download them).
