Where Is The Hock On My Dog?

Where Is The Hock On My Dog?

The hock joint is found on your dog's back leg, and is made up of several smaller joints and bones. It is the equivalent to the human ankle joint. (See picture)

The hock is a meeting of muscle, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

There are several hock injuries your dog can get: Your dog might be limping on their back leg due to hock swelling, arthritis, an Achilles Tendon rupture, or a pulled or torn hock ligament. Your dog might not be able to fully weight bear, limp or walk unsteadily. We recommend you fully support your dog’s hock with a brace, this will reduce pain and prevent re-injury.
