Internal fixation of an oblique femoral fracture in a German Shepherd puppy: A case report
AbstractA 6 month old puppy with oblique femoral fracture on the right hind limb was treated by surgical manipulation which required internal stabilization using a lagscrew fixed in a craniocaudual direction, and a bone plate fixed laterally. Bone healing occurred without complications and the dog's limb was restored to its normal use after seven (7) months.
