7.Hock instability: What is it?
The hock joint connects the dog’s shin bone to the paw where ligaments hold the bones in place. When these ligaments tear, it can cause instability in the joint, making it difficult for a dog to walk. Hock injuries can also stem from a fracture in the shin bone. Most hock injuries stem from trauma, likely due to a fall, accident, or another misstep.
8.What is the Hock on a Dog?
The canine hock joint, which is placed below the stifle, essentially the knee, on a dog’s rear leg, corresponds to the human ankle joint. It connects the shin bones (tibia and fibula) to the paw bones (talus and calcaneus bones). The hock is responsible for the acute angle of the dog’s hind legs. While dogs do not exert as much weight on their heels as people do, the two joints are functionally and physically comparable. It may also be called the tarsal joint.
After a sudden traumatic event, such as getting hit by a car or catching a paw in a hole in the ground, your dog may rupture any of four principal ligaments on the inner and outer sides of the joint, or fracture the fibula or bottom of the tibia.
9.What Conditions and Injuries Cause Hock Instability?
There are multiple conditions and injuries that may cause hock instability in dogs. Here are some common causes:
Torn Hock Ligament
When a dog’s paw gets trapped in a hole while running or between fence posts, it can tear the hock ligament. A torn hock ligament can also result from a forceful, traumatic injury, such as being hit by a car or being trodden on, which causes the ligament to be damaged and ruptured. Small ligament injuries that don’t appear to be dangerous at first may eventually result in ligament degeneration. Obese dogs are more prone to suffer from dog carpal injuries due to increased stress on the hock joint.
steochondritis Dissecans (OCD) is a painful condition that prevents bone from growing normally from cartilage. When OCD occurs, a cartilage flap forms within joints, resulting in lameness and joint discomfort. Diet, heredity, hormonal imbalance, stress, growth rate, and joint anatomy can all contribute to the development of OCD. Larger breeds are also more prone to OCD. While it most commonly affects the shoulder, it can also affect other joints like the hock joint.

When OCD occurs, a cartilage flap forms within joints, resulting in lameness and joint discomfort.

While it most commonly affects the shoulder, it can also affect other joints like the hock joint.
10.How to treat a hock injury?
Hock splints for dogs and other dog hock brace options are the most common forms of treatment. However, a particularly bad hock injury may result in surgery where pins are inserted to help repair any fractures in the bone. For a ligament injury, pins are used in conjunction with a suture to aid in recovery.
Dogs who receive surgery will likely use a hock splint for a long time in order to stop movement and promote healing.
11.How a Canine Hock Brace Works?
More and more pet owners are finally finding relief for their pups using orthopedic dog braces. Dog hock protectors can help treat hock issues. The Hock Holder orthopedic brace for dogs can help prevent injuries and sprains and help your dog move more easily and without pain. The ankle wrap fits the natural angle of the hock to prevent it from hyper extending. If applied to the non-injured hock, the Hock Holder can prevent injury in that leg. If your dog suffers from hock instability, this neoprene leg wrap helps hold the joint in place so scar tissue can develop. Once the joint is supported medially and laterally, your dog can move easily without straining the joint. While surgery for a hock joint injury is fairly rare, dog ankle braces can also be used post-surgically.
As always, if your dog is having trouble walking, first consult your veterinarian before treating the issue. With the right treatment plan in effect, your dog can more easily and quickly get back to her favorite pastimes.
