Fetlock Dislocation in Cattle

By Paul R. Greenough, FRCVS, Professor Emeritus of Veterinary Surgery, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan

Fetlock dislocation is seen in young cattle when they cross cattle guards (grillwork laid over a pit as a gate substitute). Tranquilization or light anesthesia facilitates replacement of dislocated structures. A padded, fiberglass cast maintained in place for 3 wk usually promotes a satisfactory recovery.
