Abstract:
Six clients owned dogs (n=6) with fracture of long bones were included in the present study. Physical examination and radiography aided in the diagnosis of the condition. Steps were taken to stabilize the animal hemodynamically on the day of its presentation and stabilized the affected limb with application of modified Robert jones bandage. Aseptic surgery was planned once the edema of the limb was reduced and open reduction and stabilization was performed under general anesthesia in all the dogs. All the fractures were stabilized with stainless steel positive profile end threaded intramedullary pins followed by application of modified Robert jones bandage. Pin migration was noticed in two cases and the migrated pins were removed under general anesthesia. Mild osteomyelitis was noticed in one case and was resolved after administering antibiotics. Normal ambulation of the affected limb was seen in all the animals. Complications like malunion, non-union, limb shortening were not noticed in any of the case.
