    The limping cat presents a unique challenge to clinicians. Although most patients that present to orthopedic surgeons are dogs, cats are prone to many of the same conditions but they may not be treated in the same manner. This lecture will cover a range of orthopedic diseases that are commonly seen in cats as well as review differences in anatomy and physical examination when compared to dogs. Conditions covered will include capital physeal fractures, patella luxation, cranial cruciate ligament rupture, synovial osteochondromatosis, Achilles tendon rupture, fractures, and luxations. Surgical treatment and post-operative care will also be reviewed with emphasis on differences between the species.
