Hind Limb Joint Angle Investigation in AKC Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherd Dogs
The joint of interest (the attachment between the spine and pelvis) varies widely in dogs of the same breed. It is currently unknown how this joint angle affects other joint angles and the development of the skeletal system in the hind limbs. We want to collect background data and x-rays during a single visit.
- A set of x-rays and photographs will be taken on all participants. X-rays will be limited to the hind limb
- AKC Registered Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds
- 1-8 Years of Age
- No history of Orthopedic Issue(s)
Study will cover the cost of all study related activities including brief exam and hind limb radiographs.
