The most common lesion of the shoulder joint in dogs are shoulder instability, osteochondritis dissecans of the humeral head and injuries of the biceps tendon. Lesions of the biceps tendon include rupture, tendintis, tenosynovitis, peritendinitis calcarea, luxation and neoplasia. BRUCE et al. (2000) believe that injuries of the biceps tendon such as tenosynovitis occur in active dogs, STOBIE et al. (1995) report that this injury was found in inactive dogs. In this retrospective study the correlation between biceps tendon injuries and active dogs in different sports was examined.
