The paper depicts retrospective analysis of the conservative treatment in 10 working dogs with bicipital tenosynovitis. All dogs underwent clinical and X-ray examinations and their lameness was evaluated with 5 degree scale. All dogs were treated with ultrasound therapy protocol for 8 weeks. In 9 cases dogs returned to full mobility. In one dog single appliance of ultrasound protocol did not solve the problem. In that case the treatment was repeated resulting in full healing of the lameness.
