Here is some information about Injuries Of The Pelvis. Just so everyone can see what it's all about. Then we can all give advice!INJURIES OF THE PELVIS
Pelvic injury due to car trauma is extremely common in our dogs and cats. Fractures of the bones of the pelvis and/or dislocation of the pelvis from the spine are the most common injuries. Damage may occur to the organs in or near the pelvis, and bleeding can be very serious. Veterinary attention is recommended.SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS
Inability to stand or great difficulty when rising, then standing on only one hind leg.
Your pet may appear in pain.
Swelling over the pelvis. Bruising in the groin.
Urinary or faecal incontinence.
Floppy tail, particularly in cats.MANAGEMENT
Allow your pet to find itself a comfortable position. They tend to sit with the injured side lowest. Try to get them to sit in a box or a basket to make it easier to transport them.
Keep your pet warm and dry. Towels can be used to catch urine. Warm hot water bottles may help if your animal appears cold.
Treat for shock if necessary.
Transport to a veterinarian as soon as possible.
Take note if your pet has passed urine or faeces and remember to tell your veterinarian.
