Results 11-32 of 32 in Bones, Joints & Muscles
 
11. Fracture of the Mandible in Cats
Fractures of the mandible (lower jaw) are usually the result of major trauma, especially to the head, but can be caused by disease of the bone itself, dental disease, or sometimes by the veterinarian during extraction of diseased teeth.
12. Fracture of the Maxilla in Cats
Fractures of the maxilla (upper jaw) are usually the result of major trauma, but can be caused by disease of the bone itself or dental disease. Treatment varies depending on the severity of the fracture.
13. Fracture of the Metatarsus and Metacarpus in Cats
The metatarsal bones are the bones in the hind foot that connect the toes to the ankle. The metacarpal bones are the bones in the front foot that connects the fingers to the wrist. Fractures of these bones usually occur as the result of major trauma.
14. Fracture of the Pelvis in Cats
Fractures of the pelvis are the most common fractures that are seen in veterinary medicine and are usually the result of major trauma. Pelvic fractures can have serious complications if not repaired or if the repair fails.
15. Fracture of the Radius and Ulna in Cats
The radius and ulna are the two bones that comprise the forearm. Fractures of these bones are frequently encountered in veterinary medicine. Because of the conformation of the forearm, both bones, the radius and ulna, usually fracture at the same time.
16. Fracture of the Rib in Cats
Isolated fractures of the ribs are rare. More commonly, these fractures are found in conjunction with other fractures (legs, pelvis, spine) and are a result of trauma (motor vehicle accident).
17. Fracture of the Sacrum in Cats
Isolated fractures of the sacrum are infrequently encountered in veterinary medicine. More commonly, this type of fracture occurs in conjunction with other fractures of the pelvis and is usually a result of trauma.
18. Fracture of the Skull in Cats
Fractures of the bones of the skull occur after head trauma – usually a fall from a height or a motor vehicle accident. The symptoms of skull fractures are related to the area of the skull that is affected.
19. Fracture of the Tibia and Fibula in Cats
The tibia and fibula are the two bones that make up the lower rear leg. Because of the conformation of the lower rear leg, both bones, the tibia and fibula, usually fracture at the same time.
20. Fracture Repair in Cats
A fracture is any break in bone or cartilage, whether it is complete or incomplete. With any fracture there is also damage to the surrounding soft tissues. The fracture must be immobilized to allow it to heal and this can be done in several ways.
