Today’s case is a 2-year-old female neutered German Shepherd mix with a 5-week history of intermittent left thoracic limb lameness that worsens with exercise. Take a look and post your interpretation!
Left shoulder: On the lateral radiograph, there is flattening of the caudal aspect of the humeral head with a linear mineral density that is separated from the joint surface. There is mild sclerosis of the caudal humeral head. Osteophytes are present on the caudal glenoid as well as in the inter-turburcular groove. On the ventrodorsal projections, osteophytes are additionally visible on the medial and lateral aspects of the glenoid.
Right shoulder: On the lateral radiograph, the caudal humeral head is flattened and irregular with mild sclerosis of the subchondral bone. There are small osteophytes present on the caudal and distal glenoid as well as the inter-turburcular groove.
Bilateral shoulder osteochondrosis. Arthroscopy was performed and confirmed the radiographic findings, with left bicipital tendonitis.
