A total of 24 clinical cases of dogs with long bone fractures were selected for study. All the dogs were divided into 3 groups, viz. Group I, Group II and Group III consisting of 8 dogs in each group. Group I will be treated as control group whereas Group II will be treated with antibiotic loaded bone cement and immobilization of fragments will be done by locking compression plate alone and group III will be treated with locking Compression Plate along with biosynthetic bone graft. The secondary bone fragments will be kept in position by use of wire. Fracture healing was evaluated by radiographic examination in all cases before surgery and just after surgery and also on 2nd, 4th and 8th week of post operative period. An increase in weight bearing while standing, walking and running was observed, however maximum weight bearing was observed from 30th  & 60th  post-operative day in group III. Comparison between groups revealed better weight bearing in group III.
