Objective Gait Analysis

We are thrilled to have on-site the patented GAITRite® walkway and software for advanced objective gait analysis for dogs. We can provide real-time objective data about your dog's lameness and gaiting performance. The reports are easy to understand, portable, and come with accompanying video that can be shared with your vet or other wellness provider. With more than 80 measurements, you'll understand more about your dog's body's needs than you've ever been able to before.

Now in Nova Scotia:

Excel Canine is pleased to bring in the gaiting walkway recommended by top academics and clinicians in canine sports medicine and kinematics research throughout the world. 
GAITRite® Gait4Dogs is the system used by leaders in the field, such as VOSM in Maryland and The Hamilton Group in UK.

Real-time data from your dog's paws

The GAITFour® proprietary software analyzes the walkway sensor data, automatically identifies the individual paw and determines the limb associated with each paw strike.

The system assesses limb placement, loading and off-loading and restriction in movement.  The GAITFour® software calculates a number of parameters for a comprehensive quantification of the recorded gait, including, the patented GAIT4Dog® Lameness Score (GLS®) designed to be easily understood by owners and clinicians alike.

GAITFour® provides a variety of reports in PDF format with the appropriate videos attached.  

Data gives your dog a voice

  • Unique way to see primary & secondary lameness

  • Paw - Limb specific values

  • Quantifies the degree of lameness by limb

  • Identifies the compensating limb
