History of Elbow Osteo-Arthitis Right fore
The research, led by the RVC VetCompass™ programme, reveals that elbow joint disease affects 0.6% of dogs under primary veterinary care. Over 60% of these dogs were affected in both elbows, which can make it even harder for these dogs to walk without pain. The most common presenting signs reported by owners were lameness (75.65%), difficulty exercising (19.97%) and pain (13.96%).
