Issue 5(3): ~ Diagnosing Stifle Problems Through Palpation: Part I


SKU: SKU1767953 Category:


The canine stifle is a common location of injury. In the minimally active pet dog most stresses and strains have a minimal affect on the dog’s life. These same structural issues can have an enormous affect on the canine athlete or working dog. For this reason injuries are identified in the highly active dog that are not commonly seen by the general practitioner nor described in the general veterinary literature. An experienced sports medicine veterinary practitioner should be able to identify these obscure musculoskeletal faults using a competent palpation procedure and their clinical knowledge base.
