Figure 4: Histograms represent the number of patients and the different scores they received from the veterinary practitioners (0-5), at approximately 6 weeks after treatment of their Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon (SDFT) or Suspensory Ligament (SL). A score of 0 corresponded with 0% improvement, or no ultrasonic improvement, and 5 with 100% improvement, or no ultrasonic abnormalities. Except for 1, all the patients (n=25) received at least a score 3 (60% improvement or better ultrasonic improvement than after successful conservative therapy).
