Abstract

The present study assigns the effect of neuroectomy to bone healing ofexperimentally induce bone fracture in 3rd metacarpal bone ,in donkeys by macroscopic,radiographic and evaluation of mineral levels(ca,p).Sixteen donkeys of male sex with the age 1.5- 2 years, weighting 125-150 kg. wereused for this study. These animals were healthy clinically. The donkeys were dividedrandomly into two groups( non- neuroectomized and neuroectomized) eight donkeyseach group. The animals anaesthetized with xylazine Hcl at dose 0.5 mg/kg. B.W., theninjectable Ketamine Hcl at the dose 3 mg/kg B.W.which administered intravenously.The animals of non- neuroectomized group, induced one fracture at the mid of theshift of 3rd metacarpal bone. Evaluated with clinical signs macroscopical, estimation oflevel of mineral and radiographic examination. Gross examination swelling in the site offracture and lameness. The callus formation shows in radiographic examination.Thecalcium concentration was highly significant increase after 30th and 60th days , which thephosphorus level increase after 30th days and then s decrease at 60th days
