Common injuries and conditions of the sporting dog- pathophysiology, prevention and treatment. 

The best way to prevent or avoid a problem is to know what causes it and how it progresses (pathophysiology). Cruciate ligament disease, Hyperextension injuries, Hip dysplasia and Arthritis all have environmental risks that can be assessed and minimised. 

We will also cover treatment options available for these conditions. 

The specific conditions covered will be decided based on the participants and can be tailored to suit each group.
