Joint health: A roundtable discussion (Sponsored by Nutramax Laboratories)

Nov 1, 2010

A roundtable discussion of joint health and disease in dogs and cats.

Sports medicine for cats (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

Similar to dogs, joint disorders of the cat are common. Despite this fact, the reported treatment options for cats with joint disease are limited.

Carpal and tarsal sports-related injuries (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

Injuries to the carpus and tarsus are common in agility and sporting dogs. The carpal and tarsal joints act as sock absorbers for the limb during weight bearing.

Hind limb sprains and strains (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

The most common hind limb orthopedic/sports medicine conditions afflicting active dogs are iliopsoas strains, cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) insuffiency and gracilis and semitendinosus contracture.

Challenging forelimb lameness: The shoulder (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

Diagnosing and treating forelimb conditions in dogs can be very challenging. Many dogs present with a similar history including minimal responsive to rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and increased lameness following exercise and heavy activity.

Rehabilitation therapy for orthopedic conditions (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

There are numerous studies indicating the positive benefits of rehabilitation therapy following CCL surgery. In summary, rehabilitation therapy has been shown to improve muscle mass and attenuate muscle atrophy that occurs in the post-operative period, increase stifle joint ROM, especially extension, improve weight-bearing as measured by force plate analysis, and reduce the progression of osteoarthritis.

Regenerative medicine for orthopedic conditions (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

Soft tissue injuries and osteoarthritis are common conditions afflicting active dogs due to the repetitive forces placed on the joints. Microtrauma to the tendons, ligaments, and the articular surfaces of joints can occur, creating an environment for osteoarthritic development.

Current treatment options for elbow disease (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

Traumatic fragmented medial coronoid process (TFMCP) is a condition in the elbow joint of dogs that appears to occur commonly in performance dogs.

Orthopedic devices (stifle braces, orthotics, etc.) (Proceedings)

Apr 1, 2010

In the field of small animal orthopedics, orthoses, prostheses and other assistive devices are an emerging technology that can aid in the well-being of our canine patients. These devices are used to either correct or accommodate the affected limb(s) following trauma or surgical intervention, and may be utilized as temporary or permanent modalities.
