Did you know? There is often confusion among the terms “strain” and “sprain.” A strain occurs when there is excessive stretch and damage to the muscle fibers or the muscle or tendon tears.

A sprain injury occurs when there is stretching or tearing of a ligament— the fibrous tissue connecting two bones. A common area of ligament tear is the dog’s canine cruciate ligament.
