Abstract

An 11 month old male German Shepherd was presented to the Iowa State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital with a history of intermittent lameness of the left front leg. The first episode of lameness had occurred two months previously. Treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs had temporarily controlled the lameness. However, the lamenessreturned when the medications were discontinued. The dog was being fed a growth diet. Vaccinations were complete. The physical examination revealed a partial weight bearing lameness ofthe left front limb. Mild to moderate pain was elicited by deep palpation ofthe radius along its length. Temperature, pulse, and respiratory rate were normal. A radiographic evaluation of the left radius and ulna was done.
