your dog is the family pet, a canine athlete, or a working dog,
orthopedics affects every aspect of that dog's daily life, including
the ability to stand, lie down, site, as well as to move comfortably
and efficiently. Damaged bones, along with soft tissue injury
and strictures, can cause wear and tear on joints. This can lead
to lameness, discomfort, pain, impaired function and irritability.
Although we may not think of it or realize it, that sweet, loving
companion can turn into an irritable grouch if even the simplest
orthopedic problems exist. Canine Orthopedics identifies and discusses
the diseases and maladies, genetic, environmental and traumatic,
that affect the skeletal structure of dogs. These problems that
determine the fitness, function, soundness and overall well-being
of dogs. Canine Orthopedics directs particular emphasis to how
owners can learn to evaluate problems; preventative measures including
nutrition, accident prevention and selective breeding; treatment
options (including the very latest and experimental programs from
veterinary schools); and causes of lameness. Canine Orthopedics
will give all dog owners enhanced insight to use for themselves
and communicate more effectively with the veterinarian.
