Where Is The Achilles Tendon On My Dog?

The Achilles Tendon is found on your dog’s back leg. It is the largest complex tendon in a dog and comprises five different muscles converging. Its function is to extend the hock and flex the digits. See the red area in the photo below.

Your dog can get a variety of Achilles Tendon injuries. Achilles Tendon injuries occur in your dog’s back legs and can make your dog limp, unable to weight-bear or completely change the angle of your dog’s back leg, often called a ‘dropped’ hock. A dropped hock is a complete Achilles Tendon rupture, causing your dog to walk flat-footed. When this happens, you must give your dog as much as possible.
