In this phase of life, the growth is very intensive and the dog's joy of exploration is immense. At the same time, the brain needs to have enough to do. And yet caution is needed if the joints like hips, elbows and knees as well as the long bones are not to be over-strained or over-loaded. Especially in this period of time many accidents happen, but very frequently the owners consider them to be inconsequential. The lameness/limping, or strange and conspicuous movement patterns, may only follow a little later. If these are not recognised and, above all, objectively detected and then treated professionally, kinematically and in a controlled manner, consequences may occur later. The incorrect loading, or overloading, cannot always be detected radiologically or with CT/MRI, but only with functional movement measurement. Long term consequences are arthroses. You will find more details and information on this topic in the eBook.
