Fracture of Pelvis
Pelvic Fractures: Pelvic fractures are most commonly the result of a pet being struck by a vehicle but other types of trauma can occur. Concurrent injury (including internal bleeding, bladder rupture, etc.) can frequently occur and must be assessed prior to fracture repair. Some fractures of the pelvis do not need to be surgically addressed, while others must be repaired to allow the pet to ever walk again. Many (including sacro-iliac luxations) can be performed in a minimally invasive fashion. Pets will typically spend 1-3 nights in hospital as they recover from repair.
