Type: Border Collie
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 20 Kg
Attending doctor: Chen Chaolun
Main complaint: I jumped from a height a few days ago, and then my right foreleg appeared in pain and could not touch the ground. Nothing else was abnormal.
Clinic: Right forelegs are overstretched and the weight-bearing pain is obvious
X-ray: Dislocation of the wrist-carpal joint on the left wrist (Figure 1a, Figure 2b). No other abnormalities were observed.
Other preoperative examinations: no abnormalities in blood routine examination results, no abnormalities in biochemical examinations (GLU, CREA, BUN, ALT, ALKP, ALB, TP), no abnormalities in coagulation factors (PT, APTT)
After the operation, Robert Jones bandage was applied to the dog to control bleeding and swelling, and a dog-specific wristband was used to stabilize the wrist. The wristband was used for about 6 weeks. Postoperative movement was restricted. The animal owner must cooperate with the chest strap to reduce the weight. It is recommended to review every 4 weeks until the bone heals. The dog's X-ray film was reviewed after operation, and the joints were well fixed (Figure 3, Figure 4). The dog returned to normal after 2 months, and is currently in good condition and exercising normally.
