Haemato-biochemical variations were assessed in 6 dogs that underwent supracondylar femur fracture fixation using modified dynamic condylar screw plate with a lag screw during the study period of 60 days in the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, Veterinary College Hospital, Bangalore. Haematological parameters viz., haemoglobin, total erythrocyte count, total leukocyte count & differential leukocyte count and biochemical parameters viz., serum creatinine, serum calcium, serum phosphorus, serum alanine aminotransferase & serum alkaline phosphatase were recorded before & immediately after surgery and on 7th, 14th, 28th, 45th and 60th post-operative days. Non-significant increase in total leucocyte was observed in the beginning of the study period which gradually decreased after 7th post operative day. Total erythrocyte count and haemoglobin increased non-significantly upto 60th day after surgery. The serum calcium and serum phosphorous and serum creatinine values varied non-significantly within the normal physiological range. Serum alkaline phosphatase increased significantly from 0th post-operative day upto the 14th day, with peak on 14th post-operative day. Later values decreased gradually and the values were higher than the normal range from 14th day upto 60th day.
