Bones, Joints & Muscles

Results 11-20 of 45 in Bones, Joints & Muscles
 
11. Fracture of the Carpus and Tarsus in Dogs
Isolated fractures of the bones of the carpus (wrist) or tarsus (ankle) are not frequently encountered in veterinary medicine. More commonly, these fractures are found in conjunction with other fractures or shearing injuries.
12. Fracture of the Digit in Dogs
Fractures of the bones of the digits (toes) are usually the result of trauma and often produce a severe lameness of the affected limb with swelling and discomfort of the toe. The swelling and lameness may improve with time and rest.
13. Fracture of the Femur in Dogs
Fractures of the femur (thigh bone) are some of the most common fractures seen in dogs. These fractures are usually the result of major trauma, but they can be caused by disease of the bone itself.
14. Fracture of the Humerus in Dogs
Fractures of the humerus (upper arm bone) are seen infrequently in veterinary medicine. These fractures are usually the result of major trauma, but can be caused by disease of the bone itself.
15. Fracture of the Mandible in Dogs
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.
16. Fracture of the Maxilla in Dogs
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.
17. Fracture of the Metatarsus and Metacarpus in Dogs
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.
18. Fracture of the Pelvis in Dogs
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.
19. Fracture of the Radius and Ulna in Dogs
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.
20. Fracture of the Rib in Dogs
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).
