    Default Normal & Abnormal Gaits in Dogs

    I don't know if this has ever been posted here before or not, but here is a VERY cool Gait Analysis Video, comparing Healthy Gait to Hip Dysplasia Gait and CCL (ACL) Rupture Gait.

    ps - if you're on dial up, it'll take awhile.

    Dr. Gillette at Auburn did this to Cheyenne when she was first having difficulty from Rocky Mtn Spotted Fever. He found a problem with the toes on one foot. From that he was able to immobilize the toes which gave her tremendous relief.

    Does this vary by breed...

    The trotting dysplasia looks sort of like many dogs I've had and hunted...especially when their nose is down in an upland setting or just "bouncing" around the yard. Even really young dogs who never should hip problems in their life "bounced" as puppies.

    I have a bouncing one year old now....
