Prevalence, duration and risk factors for appendicular osteoarthritis in a UK dog population under primary veterinary care
Investigation of prevalence, duration and risk factors of appendicular osteoarthritis in dogs under primary veterinary care in the UK found evidence for substantial impact of osteoartritis on canine welfare at the individual and population level.
Management and long-term outcome of pelvic fractures: a retrospective study of 43 cats
No clear correlation between the degree of narrowing of the pelvic canal up to −50%, or whether conservative treatment was opted for, and the development of constipation was found, and no clear relationship with pelvic canal narrowing could be found when considering narrowing of up to−50% in both surgical and conservative groups.

Patellar luxation warrants inclusion as a welfare priority in dogs and control strategies that include this disorder should be considered as worthwhile breeding goals, especially in predisposed breeds.
Epidemiology of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease Diagnosis in Dogs Attending Primary-Care Veterinary Practices in England.
Breed predispositions and demographic factors associated with diagnosis and case management of CCL disease in dogs identified in this study can be used to help direct future research and management strategies.
Management of Pelvic Trauma
Clinical comparison of the hybrid dynamic compression plate and the castless plate for pancarpal arthrodesis in 219 dogs.
CLP and HDCP may both be used successfully to achieve pancarpal arthrodesis and adjunctive external coaptation does not appear to have a measurable clinical benefit but is associated with morbidity.

Dorsal plating of feline ilial fractures results in significantly less screw loosening and pelvic canal narrowing at 4-6 weeks after surgery compared with LP, which may reduce complications associated with pelvic Canal narrowing such as constipation and megacolon.

French bulldogs and spaniels were predisposed to HCF, and medial HCF were more common in French bulldogs, and Epicondylar plate fixation was associated with reduced complications.
Short and long-term outcome following surgical stabilization of tarsocrural instability in dogs.
Complications are common; however many are external fixator related, and prosthetic ligaments are significantly associated with major complications.
