Bone fractures are a very common orthopedic problem in cats and dogs. In most situations, these occur as a result of trauma but may occur as a result of unknown injury or because of inherent orthopedic disease. Many simple fractures can be stabilized and heal properly with splints or casts being applied. More serious or complex fractures often require more involved orthopedic surgery with various techniques being utilized.
