Abstract:
Rubber band syndrome is an uncommon condition observed in veterinary practice. A four month old pup was presented with history of limping of left fore-limb for past 20 days. On clinical examination, circumferential wound was observed just below the left fetlock with diffuse swelling above and below the wound. Thorough examination of wound revealed rubber band causing compression at the wound site. Under local anaesthesia the foreign body (rubber band) was removed and regular wound dressing was carried out at 24 hours interval. Proper wound care and timely surgical intervention made an uneventful recovery.
