Femur Fracture Repair Using Internal Fixation Technique in Blue Bull (Boselaphus tragocamelus) Calf
Keywords:Blue Bull, Calf, Femur, Fracture, Intramedullary Pin
Fractures in wild animals roaming in free range are negligible but incidents increased manifold in recent years due to deforestation, urbanization, and highways passing through crop and forest areas. The present case report deals with fracture repair in a blue bull calf by automobile accident leading to femur fracture and its successful management using the internal fixation technique.
