A peacock was brought in after it was injured due to some blunt force trauma. The ulna was fractured but the radius was intact somehow. Our avian expert Dr. Shashikant Yadav performed a routine intramedullary pinning to set the fracture, allowing the bone to fuse properly.
For us, now at Jivdaya we can say that even intramedullary pinning in birds, has almost become routine because our vets end up performing such surgeries every few days. We receive a lot of orthopedic cases throughout the month, from fractures due to accidents, fan injuries, human conflict and many more. Yet each orthopedic case is a big deal for us and each case is different in its own way. We win some and we lose some. The recovery time may take longer in a few due to other complications in the injury or some may heal surprisingly well. Nature keeps on constantly challenging us.
This peacock is doing well and is under recovery in the Aviary.
