Pelvic Fracture

Pelvic fractures are caused by a trauma. Usually, there are other problems because of the pelvis’s vicinity to the abdomen. This can include other fractures, internal bleeding, bruised/ruptured lungs, and abdominal wall hernia.  Usually there is more than one fracture to the pelvis when the trauma occurs. Depending on where exactly the pelvis is fractured, determines what surgical procedures proceed. Pins, plates, screws, and bone cement can all be used to repair the pelvis. The animal’s activity should be limited until all of the fractures have healed.
