The research was conducted in clinical cases of twenty four dogs with femur fracture and they were randomly divided into three groups viz., group I, II and III with eight animals in each group. Group I, II and III animals were treated with Dynamic compression plating, Locking compression plating and Intramedullary interlocking nailing techniques respectively. Healing of fractures was studied on before operation, immediately after operation, 30th, 60th and 90th post-operative days in 3 groups based on physiological and haemato-biochemical findings. In the present study bradypnoea, bradycardia and hypothermia were found on post-operative days. Progressive increase of packed cell volume, haemoglobin and total erythrocyte count on different post-operative days was seen. Physiological leucocytopenia, neutropenia and relative lymphocytosis was observed on post-operative days. Monocyte and eosinophil count were within physiological range in three groups of animals. Slight hypercalcimia, slight hyperphosphatemia and progressive decrease of serum alkaline phosphatase were found on different post-operative days. However, all physiological and haemato-biochemical findings during repair of femur fracture in dogs were within the normal physiological range in three groups of animals.
