Musculoskeletal injuries are the major cause of racehorse death and attrition, with numerous potential contributing factors. 1 Epidemiologic evidence indicates that horse characteristics (age, sex, and performance quality), 2–10 training and

Musculoskeletal injury is the most common reason for involuntary loss for the horse racing industry, accounting for 80% of involuntary interruptions to training and 25% of horses exiting from the industry. 1,2 The majority (80% to 90%) of these

Although the pathogenesis of injuries involving the distal end of the third metacarpal bone in horses is complex, mechanical overload has been suggested as an important contributing factor. 1–3 Mechanical overload may be acute, resulting from a

Physical rehabilitation can increase the likelihood of a successful recovery after injury. 1,2 Restoration and maintenance of normal movement minimize the need for compensatory movement and the potential for injury elsewhere. 3 Specific

Introduction In dogs, the common calcaneal tendon consists of the paired gastrocnemius tendon (GT), superficial digital flexor tendon, and combined tendons of the biceps femoris, semitendinosus, and gracilis muscles. 1 Acute traumatic injury
