Canine Lameness: Can you spot it?

You can almost certainly identify a forelimb lameness. How are you with hind limb lameness? What about when multiple limbs are affected? Can you make an educated guess at a diagnosis from watching a dog walk, trot and stand? How are you at doing all of this, along with an effective orthopaedic examination, within the time-confines of a busy practice?

Drawing on many years of experience, including examining hundreds of dogs with objective gait-analysis tools such as force platforms and motion-capture cameras, in this session



Ben will break down canine gait analysis into simple, repeatable steps.

•Confidence in identifying and grading forelimb lameness

•Confidence in grading and identifying hind limb lameness

•Confidence in assessing dogs with multiple-limb lameness

•An understanding of how dogs adapt their gait in response to common orthopaedics
