Why use CT? What are we missing?
To watch the recording from this presentation, click on the yellow "Video Stream" button above.

Greyhounds are elite athletes, the “formula 1” of canine performance. They are incredibly consistent performers. So a subtle soreness or undiagnosed injury can have noticeable effects on performance.
This presentation will go through some cases where there has not been a definitive diagnosis with conventional radiography, but CT imaging has been able to give not only a clear diagnosis, but also informed treatment options.
So whether you see sporting dogs or companion animals, this presentation is designed to show just because a patient is radiographically clear, there may be other diagnostic considerations to consider which may better allow you to treat your patients.

To watch the recording from this presentation, click on the yellow "Video Stream" button above.

Are you confident in diagnosing and managing hock fractures?
Are you interested to see how other veterinarians manage different hock fractures?
Hock fractures are one of the most common career threatening injuries to the racing greyhound. With routine racing the greyhound hock is subjected to tremendous stress and undergoes a remodeling process over time which potentially leads to failure.

This presentation will provide:
An explanation of the biomechanics acting on the hock throughout racing.
Case examples of the types of fractures we see as veterinarians.
Critically evaluate radiographs to assist with surgical planning.
Consider the advantages of advanced imaging like CT.
The surgical approach and some tips on different fracture repairs.
Advice of post-operative care.
Assist in preventing and/or managing complications.
