"K" - Kyphosis and lordosis which are curving of the spine

Kyphosis is when the spine of an animal is hunched and may suggest pain in the spine or hips.

Lordosis is the opposite curve of the spine, sometimes called swayback, where the belly is sagging. This occurs when core muscles are weak.

脊柱上彎相當於人類的駝背,表明動物可能有脊椎或髖部疼痛的問題。而脊柱下彎則相反,多數表明動物的核心肌肉較弱,這症狀亦有時被稱為腹部下垂。
