Atlantoaxial subluxation was first reported in dogs nearly fifty years ago. Since that time a better understanding of the aetiologies predisposing to joint laxity and instability has been achieved. Surgeons however are still trying to address the problems associated with stabilizing this joint which by nature is often required in small juvenile dogs. This review describes the various techniques used, discussing the associated benefits and complications thereby allowing the clinician to make an informed decision on the best treatment for the individual patient.
