AbstractThe aims and difficulties in small breed dogs radius and ulna fracture repair are known, frequently occurring cases of nonunionn principally in distal part of these bones, by their inherent anatomical characteristics, as poor muscular recovering, small medullar channel and less vascular aport, that are the principal causes of complication in post surgical or conservative procedures. By this reality, the comparison between treatment with bone plate and screws, with and without addition of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP), in distal fracture of radius and ulna in a Doberman Pinscher, cared in HOVET surgical area is described. It was evaluated the bone callus formation, by radiographic examination in 30th, 60th, 90th and 120th day of surgical procedure, being visualized total consolidation after 90 days in the control member and after 30 days in the BMP member, showing all the beneficial possibilities of the BMP use in cases of distal fractures in small breed dogs.
