A case-based approach to small animal orthopedics. Clinical cases will be used to practice lameness localization, illustrate abnormalities of the skeletal system of dogs and cats, and discuss principles of fracture management. In-hospital cases, videos and medical imaging will be used. Two laboratory sessions (on cadavers) will provide experience in fracture repair techniques as well as stifle arthrotomy and stabilization for cruciate deficiency.


Successful completion of Year 2 of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program.
