Previous reports have identified RTA as the fourth most common cause of death in dogs under 3 years of age, with 12.7% of deaths in young dogs occurring from RTA. RTA has also been reported to be the cause of 55% of head trauma cases in dogs.

Despite this, the prevalence of RTA in dogs in the United Kingdom is unknown and risk factors for involvement in RTAs, such as breed and age, have not been described.
