Abstract [en]

Reasons for performing study: Head and pelvic motion are commonly used parameters of a visual lameness examination in dogs. Yet, there is a lack of studies describing their motion pat-tern during swinging limb lameness.

Objectives: The aim was to describe the vertical head and pel-vic motion in dogs with and without an induced swinging limb lameness.

Study design: Experimental study.

Methods: Swinging limb lameness was induced in 10 sound medium-size dogs by placing a custom made weight (200 g) proximal to the carpus and tarsus, respectively. The position of reflective markers, placed on the head and pelvis, was captured by eight infrared-based video cameras (240 Hz) while dogs were trot-ting on a treadmill before and after lameness induction. For each stride cycle, the differences in displacement between the two high-est (HDmax, PDmax) and the two lowest (HDmin, PDmin) val-ues of the head and pelvis were calculated, respectively. Pair-wise comparisons for each lameness induction compared to the sound measurement were performed using Wilcoxon signed rank test.

Results: HDmax was increased in dogs with induced swinging forelimb lameness and PDmax was increased in induced swinging hindlimb lameness (P < 0·05). Induction of swinging hindlimb lameness also increased both HDmax and HDmin, mimicking the pattern of a compensatory fore limb lameness (P < 0·005).

Conclusions: The study showed that differences in the maximal vertical head and pelvic displacements occur in induced swinging limb lameness in single fore- and hind limbs, respectively, and that vertical head motion symmetry is affected by both fore and hind swinging limb lameness.

Ethical animal research: The study design was approved by the local Ethical Committee on Animal Experiments.Sources of funding: AGRIA animal insurances.
