This session will use case studies to focus on the tips, tricks and decision-making to achieve consistent success in resolving hindlimb fractures in dogs and cats that present commonly in small animal practice. Distal femoral physeal fractures occur commonly in immature dogs and cats. This is the most common type of Salter-Harris fracture that presents in small animal practice. How to simplify fracture reduction and pin placement will be covered. Acetabular fractures are a common occurrence following major pelvic trauma and require the attending veterinarian to decide between fracture repair, conservative management and excision arthroplasty or other salvage procedure. Simple guidelines for deciding on how to manage these fractures will be covered. The tibia is one of the most commonly fractured bones in dogs and is the only long bone where every one of the fracture repair options can be used. Options for treatment, particularly of comminuted fractures, will be covered through case studies
