Dusya, an adult male cat, was brought to our clinic late at night after his owner found him screaming out of pain in his garden.
At clinical examination and after x-rays were taken, a multiple fracture of the femur diaphysis and tail dislocation were diagnosed. After confirming that the nerves affecting the bladder’s and anus’ sphincters were not damaged due to the tail’s dislocation, we proceeded to the surgery.
Tail was amputated. About femur fracture, a combination of methods had to be combined. An intramedullary pin was placed in order to reestablish spatial alignment of the leg. External fixators were used to give extra strength and stabilization.
Check the video below and watch the cat 2 days post operation.
