Fracture repair in small animals can range from plates to pins or external fixators. At Noah Vet, we have all the different types of plate (including locking), and the power drills (synthes) to insert them. We often use external fixators including ring or Ilizarov fixators to repair fractures within the long bones of the extremities. Locking pins can also be a useful implant in some fractures.

How do fractures occur?

Fractures can occur in many ways, so there’s a lot of different terms in use depending on what kind of fracture a pet has sustained. For example, a salter fracture is a type of fracture that occurs through the growth plate of the bone and is located at the top or bottom of a long bone, such as the femur or tibia. These are usually problematic in immature animals that are still growing. As we reach adulthood this part of the bone hardens. Salter fractures can both interrupt both normal bone growth and impact repair.
