Femoral (30.57%) and tibial (33.12%) fractures showed equal distribution with slightly higher incidence of tibial bone fractures. Mid diaphyseal fractures (77.78%) of tibia were common. Incidence was highest in non-descriptive breed dogs (39%) and dogs of young age (55.56%) with a body weight of 5-10 Kgs (27.78%). Male dogs (66.67%) were commonly affected than female dogs (33.33%).
