When bone is the primary issue then muscle is predictably and obviously the secondary issue. Muscle pulls on bone to produce movement, not the other way round, and when bone is affected it means that the muscles which stabilise, move and protect the joint have to work harder. This then causes a set of muscular issues which worsen the dogs condition as they become stuck in the pain cycle.
