    Wow—I’ve never seen such an excellent presentation of canine motion. I could spend hours here. Thank you, Julie.

    This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I could watch and watch…..I was especially aghast over the dysplastic dog, marveling at how unever the hips were. Until I read that it was poor marker placement. Ha!

    In early summer of this year, our 10 yr old Lab tore his ACL while prancing around after we had just cleaned his ears outside. His gait was very similar to the CCL rupture video. He has healed so well that his gait is almost normal now, and he has resumed all his activities and play.
