Abstract:

Fracture, dislocation and neurological affections are common in animals and can be fatal to life if proper treatment is not rendered. The present study reports the incidence of two years on fracture, dislocation and neurological affections in different species of animal from the urban and suburban area of Guwahati. Total of 232 cases related to fracture 88.79% (n=206), dislocation 6.03% (n=14) and neurological 5.17% (n=12) affections in different species were recorded in two years. The incidence of fracture was highest in canine (dog) 67.96% (n=140) followed by caprine (goat) 18.44% (n=38), feline (cat) 6.31% (n=13), avian (vulture) 3.40% (n=7), laprine (rabbit) 1.94% (n=4), bovine (cattle) 1.46% (n=3) and ape (Rhesus macaque) 0.49% (n=1). Dislocation was highest in canine 71.42% (n=10) followed by feline 14.28% (n=2), caprine 7.14% (n=1) and avian 7.14% (n=1). Neurological affection was reported in canine. Higher incidence of femur fracture occurred in dog and cat, metatarsal in goat and cattle; tibia in rabbit; fibula in vulture and radius in ape. Higher incidence of oblique fracture was in dog, cat, goat, and rabbit however transverse fracture in vulture and Rhesus macaque. Accident (vehicular/ train) accounted the major cause for fracture (dog, cat, vulture) and dislocation (goat, cat, vulture).
