Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence, breed predisposition and fracture conformation of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) over a 10-year period. Results were compared with published studies emanating from the United Kingdom exploring effect of breed on HCF.

Objectives: The aims of this study were to describe the type, presentation and prognostic factors of feline humeral fractures over a 10-year period and to compare three stabilisation systems for feline humeral diaphyseal fractures.

A 6-year-old, male, boxer breed dog presented with a 1-month history of severe, gradually progressive right thoracic limb lameness without history of trauma.

Previous medication included oclacitinib for management of atopic skin disease.

The dog was diagnosed with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) on computed tomography. Therefore, HIF should be considered as a differential diagnosis for thoracic limb lameness in this breed.

Objectives: The aim of this study is to describe the treatment and outcome of humeral condylar fractures and humeral intracondylar fissures in cats with patellar fracture and dental anomaly syndrome (PADS) and to provide advice on how to manage these cases in practice.
