An eight month old female Bully kutta dog was presented to University Veterinary Hospital, Kokkalai with the history of non weight bearing lameness of right fore-limb since two weeks after jumping from a height. The limb was found hyper extended with dragging of paws. The right elbow was swollen on physical examination, painful on palpation, olecranon process was found deviated lateral to the lateral condyle of humerus and the limb was held in abducted position. Radiographic examination revealed luxation of humero-ulnar joint medially and radius luxated laterally with respect to humerus. Closed reduction of the luxation was attempted under general anaesthesia, without success. Hence, open reduction and stabilisation of luxation was resorted to under general anaesthesia and ligaments were retained in position with the help of two screws. The dog had an uneventfully recovery.
