Why is Medial Shoulder Syndrome (MSS) becoming so common, and how do you prevent it?

For a long time, MSS has been the most common forelimb orthopedic condition seen in agility dogs; however, over the past few years, the global incidence is rising at a startling rate. Why? In this webinar, Dr. Canapp digs deep into the cause of the injury, diagnostics, treatment options, prevention techniques, and maintenance (including supplements, home modalities, shoulder exercises, conditioning activities, etc.).

Dr. Canapp also shares the results of the landmark MSS study, Return to Agility Following MSS, 2006-2019. This data includes what owners were noticing as it related to performance problems. Did dogs that were spayed/neutered have a higher incidence of injury? What were the most common running surfaces where the injury occurred? Which therapies worked and which failed? Were the dogs able to return to agility after treatment and at what level? And much, much more!

Whether you train and compete in agility or other performance dog sports, or you are a veterinarian or rehab specialist that works with agility dogs, you need to tune in. It’s all about education, awareness, early identification, and prevention.
