About the course

4% of traumatic appendicular fractures in dogs and 29% in cats were classified as open. The goals of treatment are to prevent infection, promote bony union, repair soft tissue damage, and restore function. The initial management of these injuries can have a huge impact on the course of recovery for the patient. This lecture will review the latest evidence on open fracture management in the veterinary patient, discuss the management protocols we use in the clinic and assist you in making the best choices for your patient if they present with an open fracture.
