musculoskeletal pain or lameness associated with osteoarthritis. Clinical assessments were conducted 3 times during an approximately 14-day period by each horse's primary-care veterinarian and by each horse's daily caregiver. Furthermore, we examined the data to

to kinetic gait analysis, but little agreement has been found between scoring systems, and the results most accurately refect force plate gait analysis findings only when the lameness is severe. 2,3 Gillette and Angle 4 reviewed recent developments

redistribution pattern 20-23 have been investigated during induced lameness in dogs and horses. The load decrease in the injured limb and the compensatory load increase in the contralateral limb are becoming clearer. However, no comparison of symmetry between

Phenylbutazone and flunixin meglumine are the 2 NSAIDs most commonly used in horses to reduce inflammation and pain associated with lameness. There is little controversy concerning their use for this purpose. However, they are also sometimes

Lameness is the most common and expensive medical problem of horses. 1 The present standard of practice for detection and evaluation of lameness involves observing horses in motion and then grading lameness severity with an interval scale, such

another study. 11 The purpose of the study reported here was to evaluate factors associated with lameness and hip joint ROM in dogs with CHD and to assess the association between ROM and degree of lameness in these dogs. It was hypothesized that longer

Lameness is a common cause of pain, distress, and debilitation in cattle, leading to welfare concerns and economic loss across all sectors of the cattle industry. 1 In the dairy industry, lameness remains second only to mastitis in terms of herd

, quick, portable, and objective means of gait evaluation for routine clinical applications. Because decreases in PVF and VI have been associated with lameness in dogs, these variables are commonly assessed in gait analysis. 4–8 Furthermore, vertical
