Summary

A 2-year-old, female, neutered Newfoundland presented with pelvic limb lameness due to a distal tibial valgus deformity. A left distal fibula ostectomy and disto-medial tibial cuneiform ostectomy were performed with reduction and stabilisation using plate-rod internal fixation. Following surgical correction of the deformity the dog regained good functional mobility of the limb.
