of Many owners of dogs disturbs weakness of sheaves or instability of joints of their favourites. Especially it concerns big dogs and giants and also dogs athletes whose articulate and copular device is exposed to big loadings. How to strengthen joints and a linking of a dog?
As the articulate and copular device of a dog is arranged?
Joints are different in a form and the building. The form and the structure of a joint are connected with the carried-out function, features depend on that part of a body in which joints are located. For example, at a jump the push is carried out by hinder legs, and lobbies undertake depreciation function.
Anatomic structure of a joint:
Joints divide :
On articulate surfaces, their quantity, features, relationship, on:
simple (humeral, coxofemoral),
difficult (carpal, zaplusnevy),
complex (temporal and mandibular, knee).
On the articulate surfaces and their form defining number of axes of rotation on:
the Mobility of a joint depends on gender and age of a dog. The greatest mobility at young females.
The more mobile joint, the better. But there are extremes when we speak about hyper mobility of joints. For example, representatives of breed the American Akita often face that there is no stability of zaplusnevy joints – it means that the restretched sheaves do not hold a joint properly. Externally it looks as flexure of a joint to the opposite side. It leads not only to discomfort for a dog, but also to big problems with back extremities further, to problems with movements.
That is is important that the joint was mobile, but the hyper mobility was not.
of the Sheaf are the strengthening part of a joint.

of the Sheaf. "Life" of joints depends on their building and structure.
