Common causes of stifle disease in dogs (and cats)
Our understanding of canine cranial cruciate ligament disease has advanced dramatically in recent years, altering our approach to the condition in terms of both conservative and surgical management. New surgical techniques continue to be developed. The understanding of the aetiology of patellar luxation has also progressed, resulting in a changing approach to this condition. This course aims to enhance understanding of cruciate disease and patellar luxation and of the rationale for the various management approaches available.
The course explores the following topics:
- Cruciate disease- aetiology and diagnosis
- Cruciate disease- treatment options
- Patellar luxation- diagnosis, aetiology and investigation
- Patellar luxation- addressing the associated limb deformities
- Cruciate disease and patellar luxation in cats- just treat like a small dog?
- Stifle OA- what are the options?
