For each axis of rotation listed below, the plane of motion around which joint motion occurs can be viewed from Figure 5-1. AXES OF ROTATIONAL JOINT MOTION The axes of rotational joint motion are as follows: ■ Transverse axis: Sagittal plane motion occurs around an axis of rotation that is directed mediolaterally. ■ Ventrodorsal axis: Dorsal plane motion occurs around an axis of rotation that is directed ventrodorsally. ■ Craniocaudal axis: Transverse plane motion, such as rotation of the trunk, occurs around an axis of rotation that is directed craniocaudally.

Dogs that have cropped ears such as some Doberman Pinschers or American Pit Bull Terriers may also be very difficult to read.
