The objective of the study was to evaluate the suitability of intramedullary (IM) pinning for the management and treatment of tibial and fibular fractures in dogs. A total of 6 cases were treated with IM pinning during the year 2018, out of which one was stabilized with adjunct full cerclage wiring; while, one case was treated by using double pinning method. A rapid return to normal function with weight bearing was observed in most of the case, except one with delayed union. The method was chosen due to its low cost, easy to implant, easily available and less time consuming and was employed with a successful clinical outcome.
