    Audience question:

    What kind of exercise is considered best for a German Shepherd with an elbow dysplasia?

     

    Answered by: James L. Cook, DVM, DACVS, DACVSMR:

    It would depend on the age of the dog, the type and severity of the elbow dysplasia, and the intended purpose of the dog, but all of the principles discussed during the presentation definitely hold true.
