SKU: SKU1767965 Category:


The stifle is a very complex structure. The most common injury to this joint is rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), but its complexity predisposes it to numerous other injuries. This article is a follow-up to the article titled Diagnosing Stifle Problems through Palpation: Part I, The Athletic and Working Dog Newsletter 5:3 pp 1-4 (2006). Stifle anatomy and palpation of ACL rupture were discussed in that article. This article will cover injuries of the other tissues.
