Luxation of the superficial digital flexor muscle tendon (SDFMT) is a rarely reported condition in dogs, and tendon tear concurrent with SDFMT luxation had never been reported. Abnormal conformation of both calcanei and strenuous activity were suspected as contributing factors in this case. Bilateral medial SDFMT luxation was surgically treated with bursa medial incision release, redundant lateral bursa excision and apposition to the edge of the SDFMT with nonabsorbable sutures. The unilateral longitudinal tendon tear of the SDFMT associated with medial SDFMT luxation was successfully treated with horizontal mattress sutures, and a good outcome was reported for both hindlimbs.
