Thread: Orthopedic exam video

  1. #1

    Default Orthopedic exam video

    Hello all;

    I often get asked about lameness's and since this is a forum with many athletic dogs I thought that this might be helpful in trying to understand where your dogs' lameness's could arise from. Hunting dogs incur similar injuries as a sled dog, so you get the idea. Hope this helps some folks. Video is from Norway and English is the language.

    Thanks for postin Dr. Tim,

    Welcome to RTF, it was nice to see what the Veterinarians look for when they do a phyiscal exam like that. Now I will have an Idea of what they are talking about

    Great. Thanks.

    My near 12 year old labrador is having an MRI next week, hopefully a diagnosis for his abnormal hind end movement will be made. Neuological examination and plain xrays relatively normal for age.

    Would you be concerned if the range of motion for the wrist wasn't 180 degrees on a 6 yr old dog? Say 150 degrees?
