SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT OF RADIAL NERVE PARALYSIS IN A 2 YEAR-OLD MONGREL

Abayomi Kayode Olaifa.

Abstract
A 2 year-old mongrel was presented to the Veterinary teaching hospital, University of Ibadan with knuckling of the right forelimb. The client gave history of automobile accident. The animal was clinically evaluated with rectal temperature 38oC, heart rate 80 beats/minutes and respiratory rate of 16 The animal resented the limb being touched. The case was managed therapeutically with Neurobion® which is a combination of vitamins B1,B6 and B12 , Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which was given by oral administration. The right fore-limb was placed in plaster cast (POP) to discourage the use of the limb so as to avoid further use of the limb while cage rest was advised. The type of nerve injury encountered here falls under the classification of neuropraxia. Here, it presents as minor contusions or compression of the peripheral nerve with a temporary interruption in the transmission of electrical impulses that will typically resolve by 3 to 6 weeks. Finally, the use of plaster cast was to discourage active use of the limb and an anti- inflammatory agent helped to quickly restore the use of the limb.

Key words: Radial, Nerve, Paralysis, Neuropraxia
