Hi all
This is the first time I have posted and was looking for advise about a fracture of the pelvis.
Arabian filly 9 months has fractured her pelvis in unwitnessed paddock accident.
She has been examined by a vet and after a rectal has diagnosed a fractue.
he recomended keeping confined for 3months.
But couldn't give me any advise on anything else to help her and was not able to tell me what the chances will be on her recovery
Has any one had this happen or can any one advise me please.
I would really like to give her a chance as she is a very nice filly and worth puting the time and effort into.

Hello Shirley,

Many,many thanks Dr O
The articles have given me hope.
I had not been able to find much info before reading these.
She is a valuable filly ,but I felt that unless there could be a positive outcome to all this, I was wondering wether to put her though a long confinment.
But we will give it a go, once again thanks from down under.

Hi shirley,
Just saw your profile. My mum breeds crabbet arabians in Canberra . She has a tiny stud but her horses compete all over the world mainly in endurance but I have seen one winning in dressage. I know this is off the subject but I am glad to see Ausies using this site its wonderful and you learn alot.
Hope to hear more from you and I hope you love this site as much as I do.
