RIGHT LATERAL AND VD PELVIC RADS reveal bilateral ischial and pubis fractures and possible left SI subluxation Chem + e-lytes – mild-moderate increase in ALT, otherwise unremarkable Assessment: Pelvic fracture(s), Matted Plan: Recommend rescue placement. Pelvic fx should heal on own with strict rest & NSAID if finances are a concern, but consulting with a radiologist and/or surgeon would be a good idea in case surgery is an option. Should be sedated to re-radiograph in 4-6 weeks. Okay for neuter, but recommend doing in house, and handling with care (not tying back legs). Start Rimadyl 25mg – 1/2 tab PO q12h and Tramadol 50mg – 1/2 tab PO q12h Keep in medical until placed Prognosis: Good SURGERY: Okay for surgery
