Cruciate Injuries in Agility Dogs

Survey for Uninjured Dogs

Cruciate injuries are very common in agility dogs! Our research team, based at Washington State University, would like your help to understand which dogs are at greatest risk for cruciate injury and to better understand which treatments are most likely to result in return to athletic function in affected dogs. We have already collected information from more than 250 agility dogs with cruciate injuries. Now we need to collect similar information from agility dogs that are actively competing but have never had a cruciate injury.

If you have an agility dog that is actively competing in agility and has healthy cruciate ligaments, please respond to this short survey (should take 15 to 20 minutes to complete). Help us better understand this important orthopedic problem in agility dogs! (opens in new window/tab)
