This study was carried out on 19 dogs of different breed, age and sex. 10 different types of radius-ulna and 9 tibia fractures were treated by circular external skeletal fixator. The cases were followed by clinical and radiological controls in the postoperative period. It was observed that the cases tolerated the apparatus well. There was no looseness of fixator stability and configuration during the 15-day interval examination. Complications like pin track, serous drainage and pin loosening were observed postoperatively. It was concluded that radiographic, clinical and anatomical data together with good preoperative planning, the Ilizarov Method and circular external skeletal fixator was successful for the treatment of open or closed fragmented radius-ulna and tibia fractures in dogs.
