Abstract

Formation of discreet bony sequestra is reported in three dogs presenting with post-traumatic osteomyelitis with no previous history of orthopaedic surgery. Two cases had a presumed or confirmed history of dog bites whilst the third case had a fracture treated conservatively. All three were treated with surgical debridement and sequestrectomy with good outcome.
