Pablo, a cat, presented to us at West Midlands Referrals with a tricky femur fracture (thigh bone). The bottom end that forms part of the knee joint was comminuted (multiple fragments).
This was neatly put back together with a screw and four pins. Cage rest was diligently enforced for 4 weeks by the owner.
We saw Pablo back four weeks later, and he used the leg well. Conscious x-ray showed reliable healing, and he was allowed out of his cage and given the freedom to roam around the house.
