Few animal models are well characterized to study stress fractures. In models such as horses and greyhounds, stress fractures occur naturally, making it difficult to control relevant loading variables or to study the pathogenesis of development of the stress fracture over time prior to its occurrence. Consequently, study of the pathophysiology of stress fractures has been delayed because of the difficulty of finding a suitable experimental animal model.
