FRACTURES
 
Broken bones are common in dogs and cats. They can result from motor vehicle accidents, fights, or other events. Fractures can be painful and animals may bite if you try to move or manipulate a fractured bone. Be careful and muzzle an animal or use large towels to cover the head to move the pet. The recommended repair of a fracture depends on the severity of the fracture and the location. A veterinarian should evaluate all animals with a suspected fracture. Motor vehicle accidents may result in other injuries besides just fractures. All animals that have been hit by a car should be taken to the veterinarian immediately.

Do NOT attempt to set a fracture- Support the limb as necessary for transport to the veterinarian.
