Present study was performed on twelve clinical cases of canine long bone fractures, for the evaluation of Titanium Elastic Nail - TENS (Group-A) and Ender’s Nail (Group-B) under C-ARM guidance. Radiological, hematological, biochemical and clinical parameters were recorded at various intervals for the evaluation of fracture healing. The quality of physical rehabilitation was considered for the evaluation of the different fixation modalities. The TENS technique was associated with lesser perioperative radiation exposure time compared to Ender’s nailing technique, however both techniques are recommended for the management of stable long bone fractures in dogs

Key Words: Titanium Elastic Nail, Ender’s Nail, fracture in dogs
