Physical orthopaedic examination in cats does not always reveal signs of lameness and no objective gait analysis method has yet been standardised for use in cats. The aims of the present study were to define appropriate parameters for pressure mat analyses during walk and jump, and to define reference values for gait parameters of healthy cats. Further, the(More)
Methods Seven cats with OA in the stifle joint were included. The cats had signs of OA both on physical and radiographic examination. The cats were registered with a pressure mat (WalkwayTM System High Resolution HRV4) and data analysis was performed on two valid trials. The results were compared to previous results from 24 healthy cats. The comparison was(More)
