Abstract

Static analysis of the canine hip has given some insight to the nature and trend of the force and subsequent stress that is normally applied to the joint. Using the static model, the magnitude and direction of force and stress worsens in the hip with the anatomic and stability changes associated with CHD. More sophisticated dynamic models that take into account unbalanced forces and moments with the resultant motion are needed to better understand the mechanics of the hip joint.
