Abstract:
The present study was carried out among the dogs presented to the Veterinary College Hospital, Hebbal, Bengaluru during a period of one. A total number of 49,600 animals were presented, out of which 39297 cases were dog cases. A total of 13,761 cases were presented to the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, Bangalore, among which 9959 were dog cases. Total 370 dogs were found to have fractures of various bones, among them 14.86 percent (55) had tibial fractures. Higher tibial fractures were seen in younger dogs within 0-6 months of age (n=16, 29.09%). The majority of the tibial fractures were recorded in male dogs 61.8 percent (34) and 38.18 percent (21) were female and major etiology being automobile accidents (55%), followed by falls from heights (43%) and other physical trauma (2%). Breed-wise studies showed that non-descript dogs were more affected.
