Abstract:
The present study was undertaken on tibia-fibula of Cattle, Horse, Dog. The long prismatic tibia has shaft with proximal and distal extremities. The Shaft was broad towards the proximal extremity and narrow towards the distal extremity in cattle and horse. The shaft of dog was prismatic towards the proximal extremity and cylindrical towards the distal extremity. Tibial crest was short and very prominent in dog. The nutrient foramina were observed posterior surface near the lateral border in cattle, popliteal line in horse and upper third of the lateral border in dog. Proximal extremity has three tuberosity and two condyles. Sulcus muscularis was deeper in horse than cattle. The lateral condyle was attached with small sesamoid bone fabella at posterior aspect of tibia in dog. The two articular surfaces for corresponding tarsal bones in distal extremity and separated by articular ridge. Lateral malleolus was separate peace of bone in cattle, whereas in horse both malleoli were attached to tibia and medial malleolus prominent then lateral. The fibula was rudimentary in cattle. Whereas better develop in horse. In the dog, the fibula was long cylindrical, parallel to the length of tibia. The fibula of dog was consisted with body and two extremities.
