The surgical immobilization of the hock joint can be difficult. A medially applied plate appears to best neutralize the effect of the long lever arm created by arthrodesis. Data from the manufacture of 50 custom plates has enabled JorVet to create a pantarsal plate which fits most medium and large dogs. The proximal portion is standard 3.5mm DCP, broadening over the vulnerable cal- caneoquartal region, and finally tapering out over the metatarsals as a 2.7mm DCP.
For small dogs. Overall length 100mm. 2.7mm/2.0mm screws.
