Summary
The aims of this thesis were to investigate the epidemiology of stifle joint disease (SJD) in dogs and to evaluate outcomes after treatment for cruciate ligament disease (CLD). The results showed that the risk of SJD and CLD varied with breed, and that breeds of molosser type were overrepresented among those at high risk of CLD. The risk of postoperative complications and euthanasia in dogs with CLD was affected by treatment method, and patient-related factors such as age and bodyweight.
