Description

Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics was designed to provide the core principles of canine movement to veterinarians, animal physical therapists and those individuals that own, handle or train dogs. It also provides information to those individuals who have an interest in movement of all dogs in general. It begins with an overview of the dog’s neuromusculoskeletal anatomy presented in a functional manner. The second section is designed to present how the science of biomechanics can be easily used to understand movement and performance of the dog. The information can be used by veterinarians and related health professionals to understand normal and abnormal locomotion when diagnosing lameness in the clinical setting. It can be used by the professional dog trainers and handlers to better understand canine movement and how it applies to dog performance. The Athletic and Working Dog: Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics addresses the key concepts of musculoskeletal function related to body structure or conformation and movement or locomotion of all dogs as well as the performance of any athletic and working dogs.
