Abstract

The veterinary literature has been enriched by numerous clinical studies and about the study of hip dysplasia in dogs, but there aren’t many works related to the feline species, although it is believed that it has a also considered important impact of increased life expectancy and changing eating and living conditions of cats. In this study, in order to diagnose hip dysplasia, the dorsolateral subluxation index of the femoral head in cats was determined by CT scans, simulating the loading position by comparing the data obtained with the angle of Norberg - Olsson. On the basis of analysis of the obtained data, it was found that the evaluation of the hip joint by this method can be predictive of the disease before the degenerative joint disease onset and with greater sensitivity than the Norberg angle measurement
